About Mexico National Museum of Anthropology
The Mexico National Museum of Anthropology is a world renowned museum with a large array of archaeological and ethnographic exhibitions, mostly relating to the pre-Hispanic era.
The Museum of Anthropology takes visitors through Mexico’s historic cultures, including the Toltecs, the Maya and the Aztecs.
Some of the National Museum of Anthropology’s most famous exhibits include the jade mask of Zapotec Bat God and the Piedra del Sol or Aztec sun stone excavated from Zocalo. It also holds original pieces found in Chichen Itza.
The museum is quite large and too much to take in during the course of a single visit, but it is well organized, allowing history enthusiasts to explore it according to eras. Guided tours also offer a great way to explore the museum and are offered in Spanish, English and French, Tuesday to Saturday from 9:30 to 17:30.
