Oaxaquia is inspired by the research of the Geologist Fernando Ortega, who demonstrated that Oaxaca is located in one of the regions of a micro continent born after Pangea and has a history of displacements and collisions extremely complex from its formation, a billion years ago, to the present.

This prehistoric island has the oldest mineral record in southern Mexico, and in its evolution and integration to the continental platform of Mexico it maintains memory of its contact with territories such as South America, Europe and Africa.

The access is free with a voluntary cooperation, in a visiting schedule of 19:00 to 22:00 hours.
