I was at the Anthropology Museum for over 3 hours and I felt like I needed more time to really get the most out of my visit because there is so much to see inside.

This museum has so many interesting exhibits, it needs several visits. Don't try to take it all in in one visit. Some of the information cards are set very low, I suppose for wheelchairs, so it takes a bit os stooping over, but very well done exhibits.

This is a truly magnificent museum and well laid out and easy to get around.
The historical importance and the exhibits are extraordinary and a credit to the curator(s).

This is one of the most impressive museum I have ever visited. Besides the beauty of the building, the museum has an incredible collection of pre-colombian artwork, statues, paintings, objects and also altars and parts of temples and other important historical sites. Particularly amazing are the azteca, maya and teotihuacan rooms. It is possible to spend a whole day there, but don't miss the second floor, with a very interesting collection of objects and information about the different tribes of Mexico (most of them still active nowadays). I found it very helpful to understand Mexico's history and was glad that I went there before going to the Teotihuacán pyramids.

This museum is fantastic! You can easily spend an entire day here. It is laid out in chronological order and touches every region of Mexico. Truly a magnificent museum that helps to explain the differences in the various Indian cultures (Aztec, Mayan, etc.) The Cafe' is great so you can spend the morning on the first part then take a break for lunch and finish in the afternoon.
