Lots of English displays and helpful English fluent guides. Spent about three hours exploring here. There are many restaurants nearby to sate... More

A beautiful contemporary building houses this great museum, with a varied and interesting collection, Not much information is presented in English but it is still worth going to. A cafe in the basement has delicious sandwiches

Interesting museum that tell the history from the Northeast viewings. That doesn't mean is not accurate, but it's kind of (even) funny see how they bias a lot of exhibits. Actually is a good museum for all ages.

They have lots of artifact from the industrial times of when the city was built. It also has a cute souvenir shop. You can also enjoy the cold AC in hot... More

What a fantastic way to spend a couple of hours for next to nothing! (I think we paid the equivalent of $2.00 to enter!) This museum does a beautiful job of laying out Mexico's history in a way that is easy to understand, even for someone who doesn't speak the language. The exhibits are well-done, and well-lit. There are several... More

I find the place quite nice and having some good collections of the history. I enjoyed the interactive mayan number system understanding and date system understanding. the ivory section is really amazing. It is all in Spanish - so my learning got limited. PS - it is free entry on Sunday

I loved this museum. So many beautiful pieces of work, i wasnt able to see it all! The museum is free on sundays, which is when we went, and closes at 7 or 8 i believe. If you're into historical art i highly suggest this museum.

The second floor is the best part. If you want to learn about Mexico's history this is the place. Only drawback is that its not in English.
