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

  • Highly recommend! Beautiful and huge museum. There is a nice gift shop and multiple large and clean bathrooms. The ticket is 70 pesos and you have to check your bag in the lobby. They do not make you pour out your water. I recommend blocking out atleast 3 hours to see this museum. There were also food options available right outside the door. I would dedicate and entire day to this area because there are multiple museums within walking distance. Must visit!

  • If your a person who enjoys learning about history and archeology this is a definite stop. The museum is Huge and can definitely be an all day experience - bring drinks and snacks in a small bag - bigger bags must be checked in. The layout is perfect with exhibits indoors and outdoors - artifacts from the earliest South American civilizations to modern age. Take the time and enjoy it can be a quick trip to see the "major" attractions but if you can spend a few hours and take in as much as you can. Admission is very affordable - no flash photos - the exhibits are well lit and show very well.

  • This is a must for anyone interested in pre-colonial Mexican history. The museum is sited in an attractive modern building and the exhibits are well laid out in every section. I spent most of a day there and needed to return. Be prepared for a major learning experience offered in both Spanish and English. If you are being parsimonious, take your own food. By Mexican standards the provision is expensive, though of good quality.

  • WoW!!! What a place - full of history and discovery - the artifacts are plenty and presented in an awesome way...lots of people from all parts of the world. This is definitely a full day discovery - at least half a day - the staff is helpful and friendly fare was 70 pesos for non Nationals takes all the pics you'd like without using flash. There is no food or drink available and you can bring in a snack and drink in a small carry all. The surrounding park is the next best thing - explore and enjoy the lively people and attractions.

  • Magnificent pieces. Poorly managed. Old. Maintenance deficiencies. Awful restrooms. It is a pity.
