This is not a small complex. The museum offers a comprehensive overview of different groups in Mesoamerican history. Signage is often bilingual, but the details shared can be dry. I think much of this would be far more interesting with an interpreter, but I didn't have time for a tour.

This museum Has the complete history of our ancient history and for me is one in its own .I was called to take the guide course in order to qualify to be a guide to this Museum as I was studying to be a tourist guide from the Secretary of Turism in 1964. For me is one of the wonders of our Mexican History. You must come and visit so that you can learn about our inheritance and of what the Mexicans come from. Its a must when you visit Mexico City

The museum is well layed out to present the different eras and places inhabited by the various tribes . I have to say i got a little confused with all the different tribes but going through it with a guide helped to keep me interested. The guide also pointed out the most important artefacts, whilst linking all the information together. It really helps later on when visiting archeological sites throughout Mexico.

This place is huge! The audio tour desk has a map of the museum with the best rooms highlighted. Unless you have 2-3 days to devote to this location, stick to the recommendations.
