You can't visit Mexico city without visiting this museum, with it's impressive Aztec Calendar, which in fact isn't a calendar at all! Find out for yourself!

The National Anthropology museum was WONDERFUL. While I knew my husband would enjoy himself as he is a museum buff, I was surprised by how much I got out of the experience and how much I enjoyed myself. The museum has done an amazing job...More

Plan all day or at least 4 hours. The artifacts are jaw dropping in quality, number and interest. Could return again and again. The building design is so wonderful. Avoid the weekend.

First I recommend to go straight to visit the Aztec Stone Calendar, and then go spend some time in the diverse sections. This is vast museum and one could spend literally hours in there.

We come here during every visit to the city and take in another part of the museum. Choose one section (history, culture, or temporary exhibit) to not tire yourself out. Come early so not to wait in line. Come on Sunday when entry is free...More
