This August there was a very interesting and unique exposition at the Templo Mayor. It was about the clothes, ornaments and jewels that Pakal’s wife (most famous maya king) used, and the jade mask. Wonderful!! If you can see it, don’t miss it!!

I went there on a Sunday so it was quite crowded. On Sundays Mexican citizens enter for free, tourists still have to pay (I think is something like 70 pesos) The place is nice, especially if you haven’t visited other ruins, and the part inside...More

Yes. In fact, you'll have to check your larger bags anyway as they aren't allowed in. They will give you a claim number and you'll pick them up after.

The food is not allowed inside Museo Del Templo Mayor. There are may restaurants and food joints outside the Museum. You may also enjoy street side food too in nearby locations.
