National Museum of Anthropology (Museo Nacional de Antropologia)

It’s easy to spend an entire day exploring the nearly 20 acres that make up Mexico City’s most-visited museum. Opened in 1964, the National Museum of Anthropology houses the largest collection of traditional Mexican art in the world—including the famous Aztec Stone of the Sun (Although the giant carved heads from the Olmec people, uncovered deep in the jungles of Tabasco and Veracruz, are equally impressive).

Each of the museum’s 23 permanent exhibit halls is dedicated to a different cultural region or indigenous group, making it an ideal place to learn about the country’s rich history and the traditions of its diverse capital city.

Practical Info

The museum is located on Avenida Paseo de La Reforma and Calzada Gandhi, in Chapultepec Park’s Primera Seccion and is accessible via the city’s Turibus. Travelers can also follow signs from the Chapultepec or Auditorio metro stations.
