    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!

    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.

    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.

    They say not go on a Sunday, but it wasn't too busy and there was live music and all the stalls were open etc. Amazing building and views well worth a visit

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

    Incrível conhecer toda a historia do lugar! Fora a vista da cidade e do bosque que são lindas. O jardim no piso superior é impecável... Vale espiar cada canto (e são muitos mesmo!)

    La mejor vista de toda la ciudad, te transporta a otra época y te sientes en un mundo completamente diferente, un lugar que debes conocer sin duda. Los domingos con entrada libre no es el mejor día
