National Museum of Anthropology
Opened in 1968, the National Museum of Anthropology (Museo Nacional de Antropología) is one of the best of its kind. A gigantic statue of the water god Tláloc, weighing approximately 200 tons, is poised near the entrance. Archaeological finds are exhibited throughout 11 halls depicting the different American cultures that flourished in this region of Mesoamerica. Ranging from the prehistoric until the Mexican period, the civilizations highlighted include the Golfo, Teotihuacan, Maya, and Tolteca. The cafeteria is worthwhile and musicians often give performances here using replicas of prehistoric instruments.
I like it very very much and I cant wait to return, I only began to understand how much I still have to read about the civilisations that made Mexico..Everything is SO interesting, so much culture inside and so well explained that I always recommend people to go there to have an idea of the country they are in.
This museum is top-notch everywhere you look. This is must see. Even the "cool" people (who would rather not go to a museum) in your group will be impressed. The only disappointment is that all signs describing all exibits are spanish only. To get the most of the museum, study first, or bring a Mexican friend if possible.
We went back three days in a row so that we coould see the whole museum last time I was in the city. When I go "home" again this summer, I am definately going back. This is something that I just can't miss!
It is so worth the time and money!
the place was very clean and educational. my kids really liked it because they could learn a lot. the only thing that didn't work for me was that i was confused where to go because there weren't that many guides to show you around.
This place costs 38 pesos, very cheap for its content. It has several large buildings filled with Mexico's indigenous cultures like the Aztecs, the Olmecs the Mayan and more. Their collections include pottery, skulls, dolls and other artifacts.
It was the first time in my life that, after 6 hours, I had to say "stop" and come back the next day. The first time in my life a museum took me actually two days to visit. The information you get there is HUGE. My head was spinning. It is really one of the best of its kind and a must if you happen to be in Mexico City and can set aside two days to visit it. I wish I had more time and be able to go back, some of the things there deserve at least a couple hours of study by themselves!
