The best museum in the area Apr 23, 2011
I attended the Museum of the Chihuahuan Desert during my stay in my hometown (Delicias, Chihuahua) in April of 2007.

I decided to go there with my nieces, and it was a wonderful surprise! The facilities are very modern and they had a small but interesting collection of sea fossils that have been found in the state (Chihuahua used to be a sea in ancient times) and some others that have been borrowed from similar museums for temporal expositions.

They have activities for kids, such as discover the fossil (buried in sand) and the staff is friendly, helpful and informative.

***UPDATE***

I revisited the museum in April 2011 and now they have opened all of its rooms featuring a wonderful collection of dinosaurs and other fossils, besides of plants and animals from the Chihuahuan desert. This museum is definitively the best museum in Delicias and a must if you are ever in these lands!

I agree, Omar! Chihuahua has so many cool things to offer and it's a bit different from the rest of Mexico. You are welcome anytime! :D
