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.
The most amazing spread of Central American historic artifacts. Most of the signage is in Spanish but you get sufficient information in English to keep you engaged. We spent about 3 hours but barely managed to go through 2/3 of the ground floor. Didn't even touch the upper level. Definitely going back the next time we are in CDMX.
Awesome museum and free for students from all over the world. Lots to see, so pack water and food as it can take half a day to see every exhibition. Great placement in the park and close to other museums and activities. Free cloakroom is useful for backpacking tourists with bags. Call ahead to check opening times as they sometimes have maintenance and close early.
Amazing museum. You could spend the whole day in there just observing the different ancient cultures from all over the world very informative. Admission is free. Certain areas are very interactive. Would love to visit again
This is one of the largest Archaeological museums in the world, and incredibly, it showcases mostly what comprises the Mexican heritage. A vast collection of artifacts and findings with excellent quality care and beautiful premises. A place that will take you away to the past and will get you lost if the richness of the Mexican culture and history. Get there early, leave there late. It will be worth it.
