Great museum in an ever greater building
Jun 2021
Great collection in a super impressive and easy to navigate building. Don't forget the gardens and visit the restaurant with authentic meals from the different regions of South America.

Really well done museum
May 2021
Spent about 4 hours alking through the museum, mainly the bottom floors and outside gardens, going over the Aztec, pre-aztec and Mayan displays. What a well done museum.
The artifacts and description we open and easy to understand. The outside gardens were clean, maintained and nicely done showing Aztec and Mayan temples and diaramas.
The museum did temp checks and limited capacatiy, so it wasn't crowed at all.
Really nicely done. It's well work the the visti.

Amazing Opportunity
May 2021
I visited the Museum of Anthropology an early morning and had the opportunity to walk through the exhibits without rush, to learn about the different periods of time in Mexico's historical trajectory, as well as to enjoy the classy presentation of the exhibits. I think it is an opportunity everyone deserves to have.

I could spend a week here!
Apr 2021
I've wanted to visit this museum since high school; there is so much to see that it took me two full days to see everything (Covid restricted the hours open), and I will admit I had to skim through some of it because there is so much here! The museum is a marvel of anthropological work and architecture, and it truly does give a sense of the many facets and histories of the Mexican people today. This is really two museums in one: the top floor features the diverse cultures of the indigenous peoples and regions in the modern country (ethnographic), while the bottom floor is the archaeological "greatest hits" of the ancient civilizations going as far back as the first evidence of human activity in North America. At several points you can look down/up between the levels as the contemporary cultures and archaeological history connect. There is also a walkable garden featuring large sections of temples, statues/gods, and dioramas of sites such as Teotihuacan, and inside there are several life-sized reproductions of temple interiors and burials that you can enter and walk through.
One caveat: some of the descriptions and videos are in English and Spanish, but I found some sections--especially on the second floor--were either in Spanish only or didn't have any explanation as to what the artifacts or display were specifically. There was a QR code featured at the beginning of some of the sections that would give you access to an audio tour, but I didn't have a chance to try that out.

Astounding collection!
May 2021
Do yourself a favor and schedule a tour with a guide. We booked though Trip Advisor but there are guides hanging around the entrance as well. Otherwise it might be too overwhelming. There is an incredibly extensive collection of artifacts, art, and more from tthousands of years of Mexican civilization. The museum is divided by era which is helpful. There is some signage in English as well. We spent 2.5 hours with our guide and we still probably didn't see everything. Lovely museum shop with quality items as well
