I am a big history buff, so I would have loved to have spent more time in here. My husband wanted to leave sooner. It was awesome!

We stumbled across this at night. What a sight to see. So amazing! We didn't get to go in the museum however had tours about pyramids so we basically knew what we were seeing. Very pretty both night and day.

It was great to see everything first hand at the site. I only wish the movie in the beginning was subtitled in English

Amazing museum of history of the life of the Aztecs before and after the Spanish conquest. The house of the eagles is beautiful and you can still feel the atmosphere of meditation that one day prevailed. Free admission to teachers and students with ID

The site is fascinating and incredible to see in context, surrounded by the colonial center built atop it. The adjoining museum contains stunning pieces.

Yes. In fact, you'll have to check your larger bags anyway as they aren't allowed in. They will give you a claim number and you'll pick them up after.
