Located on the waterfront in the Pink Zone, the Mexico pavilion describes the importance of the railway in the country's modern history and also the importance of transport in earlier times and presents the splendours and mysterious science of pre-Columbian civilisations.

Mexico is a country of remarkable technical achievements. The Olmecs once transported huge stone sculptures over 100 kilometres with means that are still unknown.

The railway from Chihuahua to the Pacific via the Sierra Madre offers one of the most beautiful views in the world. Mexican engineers proved to sceptical American and European engineers that the 260-kilometre railway was feasible after all.
