Every museum Mexico City offers you discounts with your student ID, and prices are super cheap. This museum is one of the best ones in Mexico, it's located on a beautiful area surrounded by trees and near the daily show of los voladores de papantla a show you can't miss if your coming to Mexico City.

This museum is very large, we actually didn't see it all. Since I am not Mexican, I wish we had gone more quickly through the beginning galleries (early history) and spent more time on the other side (cultural). Incredible value ... it was about $7 Cdn or so to get in!!!

For an Anthropology Museum I expected it would present the controversies and different theories that the field has, but even though it is really interesting. In the first floor, you'll find basic explications, many interesting objects and some representations of places and objects that couldn't be in the museum. In the second level, you'll find a lot of information and... More

If you are a history and museum enthusiast, this is the place to go. Ensure you are wearing comfortable shoes for all the walking you will need to do and trace the history of Mexico from when the country was first inhabited.

Well worth visiting, but maybe plan ahead or set aside enough time. The museum is huge and has a very good collection covering the pre-Columbine period to more recent times. I spent several hours there and eventually had to leave as I was feeling overloaded! (Which isn't a bad thing!)
