The construction of the first National Museum of the Ajolote is progressing in the municipality of Álvaro Obregón and will show the whole universe of this emblematic amphibian of the Ambystomatidae family.
The museum is located in an area of environmental value in the facilities of ECTAGONO, located in the municipality of Álvaro Obregón. “Our museum seeks to be a space congruent with the ecosystem we inhabit, generating the least impact with our activities,” said Pamela Valencia, founder of Axolotitlán.
The Tarango ravine, with 270 hectares (equal to the first section of Chapultepec), is the last undeveloped ravine in the city, which is why it was chosen as the site for the museum. The area is an ecosystem of projects that seek to preserve nature and the endemic species of Mexico City, and ECTAGONO shares the vision of Axolotitlán: the importance of joining forces for the greater good.
The main dome is already built and covered with recycled materials, but there is still a long way to go to finish the museum and the construction of the two remaining geodesic domes.
Therefore, the association began the third stage of fundraising through Donadora, a platform in which the purchase of products with a cause generates resources that will be used to continue with the construction of this space created by all and for all.
Thus, the Museo Nacional del Axolote is a space that would not be possible without the sum of efforts.
