Mexican museums are well known for their strong educational and social role, a characteristic that may be attributable to the close links that have always existed between the university and the museum. Yani Herreman, head of the Unit for Cultural Promotion and the Dissemination of Science at the Iztacala Campus of the Autonomous National University of Mexico, explains how this came about. The author, an architect, was involved in the museographic design of the Outdoor Regional Museum of Iztacala and the project for the Museum of Natural History and the Museum of Palaeontology in Villahermosa. She is a vice-president of ICOM and head of the working groups on museums and tourism and cross-cultural issues.
