The museum is very hi-tech. While it doesn't have a huge number of exhibits, they are carefully selected, interesting, and their presentation is simply superb.

Very nice place! The museum is well organized and they have great objects from the Aztec Empire. Besides, the building has a nice shape and the inside is really beautiful.

If you like history this is a good place to spend a morning. It is small . it has a permanent exhibition and also temporary exhibitions. It is well kept.

I highly recommend you NOT miss the opportunity to see the King Tut exhibit. Came here on Tuesday (free museum day), I was surprised it wasn't crowded. Then again, regular admission is $40 pesos ($3 dollars and change) and I believe kids are always free. My kids learned had just learned about Ancient Egypt at school and were very excited... More

I have been to Mexico plenty of times and every time I get there I discover something new. But this museum shows you all their origins from the beginning of the american tribes and then the mixture with spanish casts, then their history through nowdays. It was a cool experience. Right next on the door building there's another awesome museum.

Go on a Sunday or Tuesday when there is a free entrance. The exhibits are nice and the new Castas display is very good.
