    Located in the area between Paseo de la Reforma and Mahatma Gandhi Street within Chapultepec Park in Mexico City, the museum contains significant archaeological and anthropological

    artifacts from Mexico’s pre-Columbian heritage, such as the Stone of the Sun (or the Aztec calendar stone) and the Aztec Xochipilli statue.

    The museum is the synthesis of an ideological, scientific, and political feat.

    The museum’s collections include the Stone of the Sun, giant stone heads of the Olmec civilization that were found in the jungles of Tabasco and Veracruz, treasures recovered from the Mayan civilization, at the Sacred Cenote at Chichen Itza, among others. It also has a model of the location and layout of the former Aztec capital Tenochtitlan, the site of which is now occupied by the central area of modern-day Mexico City.

    The permanent exhibitions on the ground floor cover all pre-Columbian civilizations located on the cur- rent territory of Mexico as well as in former Mexican territory in what is today the southwestern United States.

    The museum also hosts visiting exhibits, generally focusing on other of the world’s great cultures

      Alejandro was very informed and gave a great tour! You could spend all day in the Anthropology museum, on Alejandro's tour we were able to see the highlights and he made it easy to understand and tie the different areas of the museum together in about 3 hours!

      At first we were just blown away by the amazing architecture of this museum, then thoroughly impressed by how the exhibits were set up and displayed. One could easily spend a whole day here. We were happy to have a guide for about 3 hours as at first the amount of information seemed overwhelming. There is a very good restaurant on site. Definitely add this museum to your list.

      German, our guide, was very knowledgeable and funny. Considering the massive collection they have at the museum, we learned a lot from the tour.

      This was our second visit of the Museum within the last 2 years. My husband and I had enjoyed our guided-tour in 9/2016 and decided to visit it again in 9/2018. We did more research online about MesoAmerica culture before this trip. We were able to digest more of the excellent exhibits this time, particularly through our very informative guide, Gabriel. He may be the best guide that we have ever had in all of our world travels during the last 2 decades (several continents, we may say). We recommend this Museum to be on every tourist's list to Mexico City.

      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.

      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.
