So beautiful and so much to see and learn. You could definitely make a day of this museum with a restaurant for lunch. Most information is in Spanish. As an English-only speaker, there was a huge amount of information I couldn’t read, but everything is...More

This is a comprehensive anthropology museum that covers the original settling of North and South America all the way through the immediate pre-Columbian cultures. This museum is one of the best curated I've been to.

The museum itself is very, very well done. It is attractive, easy to maneuver, and laid out in a manner easy to understand (both Spanish and English). I would have loved to have a map, but we found out too late you have to ask...More
