INAH is still waiting for the municipality to officially present the MUMO project

The municipal authority has been asked for the comprehensive MUMO project for months, but it has not yet been presented to INAH.

Guanajuato, Gto. – The local government has not provided the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) with the requested architectural study for the Museum of the Mummies of Guanajuato’s (MUMO) integral project.

To move on with the review of the construction of this new museum, which is envisaged to be established at the former Railway Station, the document is required.

The foregoing was mentioned by Olga Adriana Hernández Flores, head of the INAH office in Guanajuato, who also said that the municipality has not yet supplied any of the requested items. This statement was made by the INAH official in a news conference back on May 16th, and still, the municipal government of the City of Guanajuato has not delivered the material.

The list of requirements is rather long

Olga Adriana Hernández also mentioned that Mayor Alejandro Navarro Saldaña has been directly addressed by INAH and the National Directorate of Monuments on several occasions.

Will there be a MUMO?

Alejandro Navarro Saldaña, the mayor of Guanajuato, stated in an interview on April 21 that the MUMO will become a reality.

The mayor also said back then that “we are going to start the work, and I am going to ask the municipality’s Urban Development and Territorial Planning Directorate to provide the corresponding permits to start with the construction works.”

Apparently, the problem is that the Guanajjato municipal government has a certain budget to contribute to this important project, and they are waiting for the Federal government to allocate economic resources through the INAH so the construction works can start. INAH is willing to deliver the resources, but first, they need to review the requested architectural study for the Museum of the Mummies of Guanajuato’s (MUMO) integral project.
