Get ready, Mazatlan, because things are about to get whale-y exciting! The port is welcoming a new resident — the National Whale Museum (MUNBA) — and it's got more bones than a Day of the Dead fiesta. Imagine 29 skeletons of ocean giants like blues, grays, and even a sperm whale, all chilling in the historic 1873 Observatory overlooking Cerro del Vigía. But it's not just bony behemoths; dolphins, turtles, and other fishy friends will be hanging out too.
Nine galleries dive deep into cetacean history, evolution, and ecology, with dedicated rooms for the beloved gray and majestic humpback. For the little ones, there's a kid-sized lab, and for the big dreamers, a room pondering the future of these magnificent creatures. Remember, folks, MUNBA's mission is education for conservation, so let's learn to love and protect these aquatic kings and queens.
