This was my first stop on my tour in Mexico City. My guide told my so much about the history of Mexico City in just this one stop. You are able to take many pictures but cannot use flashes. I only was able to visit part of it because it was so HUGE.

Just finished my trip to the museum. First of all, it takes more than one day to truly enjoy the experience. Minimum 3 days. I never thought I would see some of the things I saw on this trip. Truly amazing. I cannot wait to go back. Mexico has some awesome things and history to appreciate. I cannot say enough... More

The is the place to learn about the development of Mexico from pre-historic time, through colonial to the present of Mesoamerica. A lot of detailed display, exhibits, learning materials and artifacts throughout the museum. One of the must-see museum in Mexico City. The museum, like many others, closes on Mondays. The only one complaint I have is that most exhibits... More

I went first thing on a week day morning so I didn't have to deal with the place being crowded. The museum is unbelievable. I would say it is one of the best museums i have ever been to. Be prepared to walk alot, but there are plenty of restrooms and places to sit and rest of needed. This museum... More

I was just at this museum last week. I spent a good 4 hours or so there and saw everything there was to see. The exhibits are arranged in chronological order and the artifacts are amazing. Most of the exhibits have signs written in both Spanish and English.

Amazing if you like archeology and anthropology. But its humongous almost too big to enjoy it in one visit. Got 2 days? Because after 2 or 3 hours you start seeing little Aztec figures everywhere.

We went to the Museum after doing a couple of other tourist attraction in the city and were not disappointed. This is by the far and without exception the most impressive Museum of Anthropology we have visited on our many travels around the world. We had no expectations but were not prepared for the size and extent of the exhibitions.... More
