“Very interesting place”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

Le musée Templo Mayor est un endroit très intéressant et complet, plein d'informations, indispensable si vous êtes de passage à Mexico, il vous donnera une bonne idée de comment était la ville de Mexico avant l conquête des Espagnols.
I visited Templo Mayor a few days ago and I really found it interesting. What a shame that this beautiful temple is in ruins today, but the museum will give you a good idea of how it used to be, there is a lot of information. I recommend it.

“Great history of the Aztecs”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Anyone that is interested in the Aztec history should visit this excavation site. We went with a private guide that was very knowledgeable about the excavation and the museum was wonderful.

This site is located besides both the National Palace and the Metropolitan Cathedral. Just take a quick look, snap a picture and go on to the next site.
