Within walking distance from our hotel and one of the finest presentations and collections of ancient Mexican cultural artifacts. The museum is open to the air and lighting is excellent. Visit to be sure if you are in Mexico City.

This museum is brilliantly conceived and executed. The architecture is stunning and the exhibits are arranged chronologically around a central courtyard with exits from each room to a beautiful garden outside the museum building. The exhibits are exceptionally well displayed and explained, with the exception that only some of the descriptions are in English, with most only in Spanish.

The ground floor is where the archaeological sections are. Beautiful pieces and impressive ones! Each room is more impressive than the next! If you can, arrange a guide beforehand, it will make your visit 100% better.
