The Castillo de Chapultepec was built between 1780 and 1790, constructed on top of an Aztec fortress with panoramic views of the city. The gardens surrounding the palace were designed by Empress Carlota during the French occupation and offer a beautiful stroll. It once served as the Colegio Militar (Military Academy) and was also the official presidential residence until 1939, when President Cárdenas converted the palace into the Museo Nacional de Historia. Restoration efforts have significantly enhanced the construction as well as the design of the interiors.
The Castillo de Chapultepec is not the one that appears in the photo. It is a beautiful place. I like the place where it is built, and you can learn Mexican history from the time before the Spaniards got to America to the beginning of last Century.
My wife's family and all of my inlaws live in D.F. We go down there every year and there is always something we didn't see before. It is a amazing place, the food from the stands on the corners to the restaurants are awsome. Castillo de Chapultepec is a nice museum and you can take pictures because i did all i did was ask first true you can't take them inside.
One review said the food was great. I don't know where they were when they wrote that, but Castillo de Chapultepec is a nice museum. You aren't allowed to take any back packs in and no photography (with or without flash). They have a place where you can check your bag and they are very orderly and professional with them. I had a laptop so if you have a nice camera or something, I wouldn't worry too much about leaving it. The faclities are first rate, the actual story of the place is sad, and I definatly recommend going. It's probably the nicest place in the park -atleast for adults. I don't remember paying anything to get in but if I did, it wasn't much so the value is 5/5. I gave 4/5 for atmosphere because it's no Smithsonian but it's very interresting and first rate. A must see.
This museum forms part of an 18th century mansion owned by Jose de la Borda, a wealthy albeit ruthless silver
miner. For a time it was a post office, and after serving several ends, it came to house the ...
