About Muse De Templo Mayor, Mexico City

Muse De Templo Mayor - A temple of Museum in Mexico City, Mexico. This temple was discovered only recently, in the 1970’s when workmen digging closed to the Zocalo unearthed the Pyramid of Huitzilopochtli (god of war) and Tlaloc (god of rain and agriculture). The unearthing of the temple revealed a treasure trove of objects, over 7000 of them. Masks, miniature statuary, tools, ornaments, and the massive wheel of Coyolxauhqui (goddess of the moon),  it’s all quite aesthetically displayed, even the wall of skulls.

Muse De Templo Mayor, Mexico City Reviews

  • Amazing site. Explanations are clear and interesting but in Spanish only throughout the exterior exhibits. Some dual language in the entrance museum. Interesting exhibit on the Mixteca going on now... I don't know if it's always there or a changing exhibit. Do not bring food, water or gum with you.. you will be asked to throw it away.

  • This museum is very nice! Everything is explained in Spanish and English. The outdoor section showing the various sections of temple ruins were well labeled. The interior museum has 8 rooms, each with a different theme. I found the first four rooms to be the most interesting. I loved the interior design of the museum too.

  • A historical site which was razed to build new cathedrals in place. Entrance fee is 70 pesos. Worth the visit. The ruins are well preserved and the museum provides further insight of the culture and life of the past. This attraction is one of the must visit in Centro Historico in CDMX.

  • So much history, so much to learn. It's like a tiny slice of the anthropology museum (which I can't recommend enough). Go early. The Sunday midday crowds really make it hard to appreciate what you're looking at, when fully half the people are taking selfies instead of looking at what's right in front of them. 4 stars only because most of the interpretation plaques are in Spanish only. I fully understand how this complaint makes me sound, but know your audience. English is an international language, and you're only charging the foreigners admission. (If my friend hadn't asked me a question right in front of the gatekeeper, I would have gotten in for free.) So please make it possible for us to understand what we're looking at - and paying for. (Most of the outdoor plaques are Spanish & English. Almost everything inside is Spanish only.) Also? Security is a joke. Two different guards looked in the main part of my bag. They made me throw away my water, but didn't look at the rest of my bag, even though the metal detector was going off. (It was going off for everybody.) What's the point?

  • Amazing. One should visit it in his or her life. By the way take some energy bars and lot of liquid. The place is huge.
