Simply don’t miss. Allow time. Don’t just see the Aztec display. See the Olmec, maya and ethnographic displays on the second level. If there are doors to the outside or steps down, follow them. They lead to exterior displays and tomb recreations. It’s my second...More

Great museum to learn about Anthropology, and most content have English translation which is great (unlike other museums). It is walking distance to the Polanco district & Chapultepec Castle too.

Amazing! So much to see here, so much to learn. Plan it well, there is a lot to go over so you should have enough time to explore all the expositions.

Must see in CDMX even if you are not interested in anthropology or history. Amazing items lovely displayed. Very rich collection of precolombian art and every day objects of Latin American (Mexican) tribes.

This is a must in your Mexico City visit, especially if you are into history and precolonial cultures. This is a big museum, with a lot of pieces to see. The most impressive room is the Mexicas (or Aztec) room. Outside the museum, you can...More
