Know More about this tour

After meeting outside of the Museum of Anthropology and History, your guide will lead you around one of the largest museums of its kind in the world. Along the way, your guide will describe why this museum’s collection of pre-Columbian artifacts is the most important in Latin America.

When you reach your destination, meet the museum’s cultural interpreter, who will enlighten you about the various exhibits and their significance. As you pore over objects excavated from archaeological sites, covering vast territories in what is now modern-day Mexico, learn about the various cultures that created them.

Explore rooms where small objects such as spear points are on exhibit, used by early hunters on the continent more than 10,000 years ago. See simple clay pieces used in both daily life and as symbolic articles in religious ceremonies.

Admire items that could fit in the palm of your hand as well as impressive objects like the ‘sun stone,' or Aztec calendar. Your guide will explain the meaning of these valuable contributions to Mexico, as well as the ways historians have been challenged to rethink the development of the Mesoamerican people — including Mayan, Aztec and Zapotec cultures.

  • Spending more than two hours in the museum with a very knowledgeable guide helps a lot in understanding the museum and different displays in it. The museum itself is highly recommended, as it let you see important displays of all the major native cultures and tribes that lived in Mexico and the effects of colonialism on them.Note that this is not enough time to go through the entire museum in the tour, which covers just a small part of it. covering the entire museum requires about a full day.

  • I turned up 20 minutes before the tour was to begin and waited until 10 minutes after we were supposed to leave, but nobody bothered to turn up. Emailed the company when i got back, but nobody bothered to get back to me either. Find a different guide, there are plenty around. Really disappointing

  • My tour guide, Sandra, was very good during the time we were together. I misunderstood where the meeting place was so we were late getting started but she is a kind and understanding person.

    I wish we had spent time tin the Maya exhibit.
