This place is a treasure trove of historical items. I was honestly overwhelmed trying to take it all in. They have so many wonderful archaeological artifacts that you probably have to do it in two days. I wish I had taken a guided tour to...More
This museum would be in my top 10 in the world. The building is great, spacious am
Nd modern. The exhibits are well labelled, diverse and explanations are in English as well. The dioramas are fabulous to look at. Don’t miss this!
Its a beautiful museum, you find the Aztec and fantastic sculptures, feathered headdresses, you need hours to tour this place. The cafe has delicious coffee and pastries, light sandwiches but if you prefer a meal the restaurantde has nice meals. I usually patronize the museum...More

This rivals Cairo's Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, but much more organized and has as much historical chronology. Sundays...More
A wealth of knowledge and history! We had a tour guide so that was helpful! Checked bags for free so you don't have to carry them. We were able to take photos as well! Nice little square out front with vendors to grab a keepsake!

The day I went to the museum, there were no guides. Went to the information desk, and they knew nothing about guides. Went through the first floors of the entire facility in one day. Most of the exhibits are in Spanish. A few are in English. In the afternoon, I saw a few people with audio guides. When I asked if audio guides in English were available, I was told they were not from the museum, but from some private tour service.
While the museum is incredible, my impression is that the organization of guide services is haphazard and training of staff at the information desk is weak at best.
