The Museum Rally concludes Wednesday in Mexico City, which for 20 days offered the general public various special activities, workshops, temporary exhibitions and tours.

For the second consecutive year and in collaboration with the Mexico City Culture Secretariat, this series of events took place from 11 to 31 May in 50 venues across the capital, where participants were able to collect stamps and clues to obtain a surprise gift.

This rally was made available to all members of the family, who in addition to knowing and learning about each museum visited, could search for clues to win prizes, which varied depending on venue.

According to the rules of the game, the first 500 people who collect all the stamps and clues must go to the Museo Nacional de la Revolución Mexicana with their stamped passport and redeem their gifts.

The Museum Rally included 50 venues throughout Mexico City, including the Metro, Arte Popular Mexicano, and Estanquillo musuems, as well as those located in Panteón de San Fernando, Antiguo Colegio de San Ildefonso, the Ferrocarrileros and Natural History museums.

To recognize the role of cultural venues in the development of society, the Mexico City government dedicated a month to celebrate International Museum Day, celebrated every May 18 since 1977.
