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.
- Prepare to spend 4 – 6 hours to cover everything.
- Wheelchairs available.
- There’s a nice restaurant and café on the ground floor.

A spectacular museum. Set in a stunning, modern, spacious facility with a huge selection of material of the highest quality, covering the spectrum of the history of this continent. Divided into an easy to follow chronology, beautifully presented & displayed, with informative descriptions & intros. The collection is vast & it can easily take a couple of days to see & appreciate it all. Highly recommended:)
Great museum to visit while in Mexico City. Lots of very interesting pieces to view, make sure and check out the large calendar l. Small temporary exhibits that rotate but are very cool as well. I recommend everyone interested in history to check this one out. I believe every Sunday is free admission although it can be a bit busy at this time. Come early if possible to avoid that. Lots of vendors outside in the park to get great food from.
A great place to learn the history of the Mexican people, especially before colonial times. We got a free entry on Saturday, not sure if that's normal. The architecture of this museum is very nice. They have organized the space based on the different people's/regions of Mexico, which is done really well.
As of this review the top floor of the museum is closed. Had a great time here! We didn't have enough time to visit the entire museum because you can soejd hours here but we had an absolute blast. The museum does a great job of walking you through the history of Latin America. Some of the pieces they have are stunning!
Native English speaker here, loved the amazing array of artifacts that were on display. However not many had an English description next to them so unfortunately lost out on getting a more detailed experience. No complaints , it's Mexico and they don't speak English as their first language so I get it, just an observation. It's well layed out and quite a lot of walking g if you wish to see it all.
