    A complete tour in this museum takes a bit more than three hours. So, the best thing to do is to visit the Mayan and Aztec halls, which are the most representative. Visit the souvenir shop.

    Magnificent museum. Should not be missed & you will need at least four hours to see all. Get the audio tour guide to maximize the visit. Fascinating stuff.

    You must not leave Mexico City without visiting the Museum of Anthropology. Even the walk through the park Bosque de Chapultepec +/or along tree-lined Paseo de la Reforma boulevard is an "appetizer"

    There's a lovely outdoor cafe hidden down the stairs to the left as you enter the main central area. Great quiet place to drink and recharge.

    Unforgettable museum. The best I've ever been to. The ethnographic level (upper) is a fascinating look into Mexican culture today. The first floor offers a glimpse into the past. Spend at least a day.

    If you only visit one museum while in Mexico, make sure it is this one. Amazing exhibits, but be sure to set an entire day aside if you want to enjoy it fully.

    The museum is huge! And now my favorite museum I've ever visited! Definitely requires at least half a day, if not the whole day if you really want to see and read everything.

    Do get the audio tour, most info of the items is not in English. They did however forget to add the number on most items so you have to compare the item name with that paper they give you.

    It's a very affordable museum. The architecture alone is worth a visit.

    One of the best museums I've visited ever! Each section contains info that ties in to history from all parts of Mexico. Start with the North, then Central & so on. Make it a several day excursion.
