It is hard to find a map for turists about UNAM, but you can find in the internet a pdf with a map for the Pumabus routes (this map has the bus internal routes you can take inside UNAM, and mark the main places). By now... More
It is hard to find a map for turists about UNAM, but you can find in the internet a pdf with a map for the Pumabus routes (this map has the bus internal routes you can take inside UNAM, and mark the main places). By now, think I can help you, this since I know almost perfectly UNAM because I studied and worked there almost 10 years (and hope to going back). The places you want to see are located in the old part of UNAM's, this one is called "Campus Central", there are all located on Insurgentes Avenue, then there is not difficult to find them. First depending where you are coming from, you are going to see to in one side the UNAM stadium, and in the other side of the avenue you will see a tower, that one is UNAM's main rectory. Then, the things you are looking for are located around that tower: the library is going to be on the left side of the rectory and, also nearby it is located a museum inside the architecture faculty to the right side of the rectory (but think they have moved this one to another place). Then this another place called "Centro Cultural Universitario" or "Zona Cultural", that has also museums (one is the contemporary art or MUAC) and has other places to visit, it is located to the South of UNAM. Hope this is helpful for you. Best regards and hope enjoy your trip.
