Museum of the City of Mexico
The 27 halls comprising the 18th-century colonial palace Museo de la Ciudad de Mexico offer an insight into the urban development of the city of Mexico through maps, maquettes, paintings, and photographs on exhibit. The room on the upper level displays murals painted by the Mexican painter Joaquín Claussel. Among the many highlights found here is a large wooden door of intricate carved detail, including the coat of arms belonging to the Counts of Santiago de Calimaya. A presumably pre-Hispanic serpent's head, fashioned in a large stone, juts out from the building towards the corner of República del Salvador.
