    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.

    This massive and noteworthy museum of pre-Hispanic art thoroughly covers each region of Mexico and its history, displaying beautiful and historical pieces of art and artifacts.

    So much history.. Very detailed on every object and story. Family friendly and extremely educative

    Hard to get to all the rooms in one visit but what an amazing collection!
  • Peter I.
    Most of the large placards have English, not the smaller artefact ones. Beautifully modern and laid out. Loved the hybrid indoor/outdoor layout. A true anthropological tour through Mexico's history.

    What an amazing place! Make sure to check out the western and northern cultures. Also, go to the Mayan tomb!

    This is located inside the park (Bosque de Chapultepec). Keep in mind that the museums are closed on Mondays.

    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.

    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.

    This is one of my favorite museums in the world, and I have been in a lot of museums around Brazil, USA and Europe. Try the near Starbucks at the park, they have a gorgeous environment for a coffee!

    A great museum with amazing artifacts. It's very well laid out and many of the signs are in English as well as Spanish.

    Super interesting museum - leave yourself plenty of time. Eat before of after though as the cafe is terrible and a time sucker

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

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.
