    Free for local. 64 pesos for visitor. Perfect design. Fantastic place to learn. However, lack of English introduction.

    This is a very big museum worth to take your time to take a look at it and enjoy it.

    If you would like an English speaking tour guide, you can find an official one outside the museum entrance. Well worth the money if you're there to actually learn something.

    -.Best place to learn about Mexican culture if you're a 1st timer. Although you need a whole day to see it all.

    It is a must. A time-travelling place. Beware of the mammoth!

    Be ready to walk a lot. It is actually tiring.

    Most of the museum is indoors. Some parts are outdoors, so bring a light jacket if you think it might rain. There are models of pyramids outside for example and some interesting plant life.

    This museum is amazing!! You could easily spend 3 weeks here and not take it all in! Pack a lunch! It helps if you can understand Spanish, but many areas have signs and descriptions in English, too.

    One of the great museums in the world. Don't miss.

    Stephan Van Dam · December 30, 2014

    New & improved. The architecture and lighting alone are worth the visit, but the overall story of pre-Colombian Mexican history is difficult to comprehend in context. Better time maps would help

    Stephan Van Dam · December 26, 2014
  • Lucille F.

    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.

    Lucille Fisher · December 20, 2014
  • Phil S.

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

    Phil Shannon · December 15, 2014
  • Lucia S.

    Must. But start With the mayas which is the most important part in the museum, I recommend this because the museum is huge and you don't want to miss the best of it/

    In my opinion, the best museum in Mexico, you have things like the original Sun Stone (Aztec Calendar), Obsidian pieces, dioramas.

    This museum is incredible. Be sure to block out the whole day (not Monday when its closed) to explore the depths of this nation's culture.

    An absolute 'must' when visiting Mexico City. If you can't visit more than one museum during your trip, this is the one you have to see.

    Alejandro Rico · January 31, 2014

    free on Sundays

    A must visit in Mexico, with very interesting prehispanic objects, and major exhibitions, brings much knowledge to understand present and origins of this beautiful country

    The Maya and Azteca rooms are the best ones, however the entire museum is really a must, very well organized and unique collections

    One of the best museums in the world. Dont be a foreginer, be a traveler. O pensar frontera 9 to 5. Closed on Monday.

  • ToryBurch

    This phenomenal museum is divided into "halls," each celebrating a different Mexican culture. Visit the Mexica Hall first, where an intricate sun stone depicts the Aztec cosmos.

    ToryBurch · June 21, 2013
  • Audrey S.

    Don't forget to visit the ethnographic section on the 2nd floor!

    A trove of pre-Columbian treasures, among them the Piedra del Sol, whose carvings reveal the cosmological complexity of Aztec beliefs, and a Toltec armored vest made from seashells.

    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.

  • Per G.

    Short of time? Room no 5,7 and 10 are the essential ones.

    Per Grankvist · September 8, 2012

    Not only does it house the largest collection of ancient Mexican artifacts, but the space itself is magnificent. In the main courtyard is an enormous concrete umbrella, known as the Paraguas. Read more · August 31, 2012

    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"

    Henry Lee · March 10, 2012
  • Stills

    Look for the large blue pole across from the main entrance-- amazing free acrobatic show!

    Stills · March 1, 2012
  • Christopher C.

    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.
