The museum has several expos, but I only visited the prehispanic one. You start with a timeline showing different cultures dating back thousands of years, then you go through rooms showcasing different mexican cultures like Aztec and Mayan.

This museum has a collection that spans pre-hispanic to contemporary. Some of the best contemporary art I saw in all of Mexico.

The Amparo is a modern museum with a good collection of Mesoamerican artifacts. In addition, the second floor has colonial and modern art from Puebla. The colonial collection is worth the time. Most people can skip the modern collection. I would give the Amparo a...More
