Museum of Natural History

Villahermosa

Among Villahermosa cultural tourism attractions, the José Narciso Rovirosa Natural History Museum stands out, in honor of Tabasco-born naturalist, who made relevant research in the 19th century on the areas of botany, zoology, meteorology, linguistics and other disciplines.

The museum has different-shaped-and-sized five rooms, three on the upper level—“Tierra”, “Vida” and “Tabasco”—and two in a mezzanine—“Man” and “Resources”—. While advancing, you can see a moving globe that shows a synthesis of the Universe's origin and formation.

Later, the replica of an allosaurus is found welcoming the room that addresses life evolution. On the other hand, an immense jungle recreation tells us about Tabasco’s geographical and geological characteristics. The end comes in the “Man” section, which shows the human being's position in the animal kingdom.

The museum's open spaces offer deep perspectives and diverse viewing angles to interrelate rooms’ themes. Together with the La Venta Park-Museum, the Natural History Museum belongs to the great Tomás Garrido Canabal Park settled on the shores of the Laguna de Las Ilusiones.
