In 2011, Pro Bosque Trust, in collaboration with the Natural History Museum,
Chapultepec Park´s Management Direction, and the Federal District Water
System, launched the Water Garden Museum project. A museological
intervention project whose objective was to have an impact on the urban
context, intervening 16.5ha of the Second Section of the Chapultepec Park,
where the water of the Lerma-Cutzamala System is received.
In addition, the project created a living museum that, through its route, allows
visitors to know the operation of the drinking water supply network to the city
in order to promote awareness and citizen interest in water management in
The Jardín del Agua Museum began with the restoration and architectural

Diego Rivera in 2010. The objective of this second stage consisted of
