    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!

    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.
