About National Museum Of Anthropology, Mexico City

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

  • One of the best museums I've ever been to! The fact that it cost only 70 pesos (or about 3.50 USD) is incredible. You can easily spend a whole day here if you take your time, but if you only have a couple hours head straight back to the Aztec collection - it's the most impressive. I loved that many of the collections had an outdoor component to them. Tip: if there's a big line for tickets when you walk in there's automatic ticket machine located next to the gift shop.

  • Definitely can spend all day here. So many displays that are beautifully preserved with a lot of replicas as well. Plenty of information in English and so much information in Spanish! If you can read Spanish you can easily spend a few days looking at everything. Seventy pesos for all day entrance and is worth every bit! You can bring a lunch but you will have to leave it in the free lockers. Definitely worth checking out if coming to Mexico city!

  • This museum is great both in terms of size and experience. It's exhibitions are well structured so you can keep going around. Food is not allowed inside so have a solid breakfast before going there. If you don't just skip through exhibitions prepare to spend up to half a day if not more.

  • Good place to go through the history of Mexico through the ages. It’s a well maintained and well organized establishment and even has a good cafeteria, though a bit hidden on the lower level. Some of the exhibits are placed nicely in the open nestled between trees and bushes. You can even see curators working on fixing old relics. It’s a good way to spend some quality time.

  • This museum is VERY large. The exhibits are very nice and the information is very deep. To see the whole museum and actually read and take your time, it would take you more than 1 whole day. Best thing is to pick the sections that you prefer or to take the tour that helps simplify and highlight the best of the best. If history and learning is your thing, surely you want to go to this landmark.
