    If you felt like going to the Chapultepec Park, don't forget to visit the this Castle afterwards, where you will enjoy an amazing view, beautiful decorations and the Porfirian style of construction.

    The museum is located at the top of the hill. Make sure you have water before you begin your journey to the top. There's lots of historic murals make sure to visit all rooms!

    The building is as majestic as a true castle should be. Add Siqueiros masterpiece on the first floor and the beautiful views of Mexico City from the gardens.

    It is located in the middle of Chapultepec Park at a height of 2,325 meters above sea level. It is the home of the National History Museum, but the nicest part is the gardens...

    This museum is a royal castle in the middle of Mexico City. The architecture is fantastic and the history that counts includes objects, furniture and antique clothes that enrich the visit even more.

    It’s great to visit Castillo del Bosque de Chapultepec for a foreigner. Because it’s National Museum of History, and it can help you to understand a litte bit about Mexico.

    Hydrate before start your way up to the castle. Guards don't allow bottles in and there's none for sale inside.
