Stunning exhibits capture the major Mexican ethnic groups...Miztec, Mayan, Aztec, etc. The best finds in Mexican anthropology have been brought here. Even non-museum lovers will love this place.

I can't say enough about this place. It is definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I would recommend visiting 2 areas at a time because it is a huge museum and rather overwhelming. If you're short on time visit the Mayans and the Aztecs or Mexicans. This...More

I spent at least 6 hours touring the exhibits & magnificent artefacts of this museum. A cafe is attached with plenty of seating so you can dine & return to the exhibits. Highly recommended

There are treasures worth discovering in this museum.it is so big that it would take several days to see and absorb it all. Do some research and be selective. There is occasionally a free exhibition which may be as worthwhile seeing if you have limited...More

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.

Hi. I don't think I paid - but if I did it was very minimal. The price quoted by the other wrtier sounds about right for Mexican Museums - they really are inexpensive to visit.
