Amazing! So much to see here, so much to learn. Plan it well, there is a lot to go over so you should have enough time to explore all the expositions.

Must see in CDMX even if you are not interested in anthropology or history. Amazing items lovely displayed. Very rich collection of precolombian art and every day objects of Latin American (Mexican) tribes.

We went the morning we were flying out and the museum is very well done, with modern lights, displays and nice open courtyard. Some displays and even videos are in English, as well as Spanish, obviously.

Yes. Most of the museum is wheelchair accessible. In fact, there were many physically challenged people touring the exhibits as there was a competition in the city for para-olympic athletes.
