National Museum Of Anthropology - Review
National Museum Of Anthropology (Museo Nacional de Antropologia) - A Museum in Mexico City, Mexico. This is probably the second most visited destination in the city, and there’s nearly nothing bad to be said, only praises to be lavished. It’s Mexico’s most popular museum, and focuses on the Native American heritage of the country, both Aztec and Mayan. Exhibits include the famous Stone of the Sun, stone heads from the Olmec Civilisation, Mayan aretfacts, and even a layout of Tenochtitlan, the Aztec Capital on which Mexico City itself was built. The layout of the place is intelligent and the exhibits seem to flow from one to another, weaving a rich history for the viewer. And it’s massive. If you take your time, you could easily spend an entire day here.

National Museum Of Anthropology, Mexico City Reviews
Huge museum showcasing Mexico's past and present day indigenous cultures, though perhaps overlooking what is right underneath their noses. Though many might only spend a day here, I couldn't get through the first floor in 8 hours, let alone even see the second. If you are like me and think, "oh- I'll just come back on Monday since I will still be in town" if you don't see it all on the weekend like me- don't plan on it because it is closed along with most other nearby places that you might also like to see! Plan ahead and wear sturdy walking shoes. Maybe you aren't a museum person and/or only have an hour to spend- its still worth the 70 pesos ($3.50) to walk directly to the end room and see the huge rocks these people carved with hands and ingenuity. Its pretty incredible and a bucket list experience for me.
This place was just mindblowing and filled with me awe and reverence for the great Mexican history. Amazing place with room after room filled with perfectly kept historical artifacts. We didn't even get to see it all because there was construction going on but it still took a solid 3 hours. Love the little details with the different themes gardens for each section. Highly recommend for all tourists, you will gain a deep respect for this country!
We enjoyed the walk through this Museum as it had many many different articles from the Aztec Empire and how the Mexican population came about and they also had the pyramids replicas and other replicas of other statues that they had uncovered not to mention mammoths under glass. Really cool place to go to. In the distance outside we saw the Indians doing the rope swing off of a pole or four five six of them that would swing by their feet off of a big huge Pole. That was cool.
Don't miss this museum in Mexico! Free on Sundays otherwise 70 pesos For some reason they did not make me pay ?! The museum is lively and incredible, the reproductions are very well made, and the different rooms are amazing. I can take up to 4hours to visit it all if you read everything so go there early! I was truly fascinated by the pieces of art.
We went there as a group and it would have been nice to know that you get scheduled a guided tour, at least a week ahead but we didn't know about it. Regardless of that we had a great time. The place is pack with artifacts and you can literally spend hours here. The main fountain was under remodeling so we didn't see the water running. We for sure will be taking more groups there for history and a good family time.
