Stop At: Museo Nacional de Antropologia, Avenida Paseo de la Reforma y Calzada Gandhi s/n Col. Chapultepec, Mexico City 11560 Mexico
Located in the area between Paseo de la Reforma and Mahatma Gandhi Street within Chapultepec Park in Mexico City, the museum contains significant archaeological and anthropological
artifacts from Mexico’s pre-Columbian heritage, such as the Stone of the Sun (or the Aztec calendar stone) and the Aztec Xochipilli statue.
The museum is the synthesis of an ideological, scientific, and political feat.
The museum’s collections include the Stone of the Sun, giant stone heads of the Olmec civilization that were found in the jungles of Tabasco and Veracruz, treasures recovered from the Mayan civilization, at the Sacred Cenote at Chichen Itza, among others. It also has a model of the location and layout of the former Aztec capital Tenochtitlan, the site of which is now occupied by the central area of modern-day Mexico City.
The permanent exhibitions on the ground floor cover all pre-Columbian civilizations located on the cur- rent territory of Mexico as well as in former Mexican territory in what is today the southwestern United States.
The museum also hosts visiting exhibits, generally focusing on other of the world’s great cultures

This was our second visit of the Museum within the last 2 years. My husband and I had enjoyed our guided-tour in 9/2016 and decided to visit it again in 9/2018. We did more research online about MesoAmerica culture before this trip. We were able to digest more of the excellent exhibits this time, particularly through our very informative guide, Gabriel. He may be the best guide that we have ever had in all of our world travels during the last 2 decades (several continents, we may say). We recommend this Museum to be on every tourist's list to Mexico City.
We booked a tour with an English speaking guide. When we arrived, we were told that there was 20 people and that they would have an English speaking group and a Spanish speaking group. We ultimately entered the museum 35 minutes late with a single guide who said he would do the tour in both Spanish and English. The tour we were promised ended up being mostly Spanish. His spanglish was incomprehensible. DO NOT USE THESE GUYS! THEY ARE TERRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!
Spending more than two hours in the museum with a very knowledgeable guide helps a lot in understanding the museum and different displays in it. The museum itself is highly recommended, as it let you see important displays of all the major native cultures and tribes that lived in Mexico and the effects of colonialism on them.Note that this is not enough time to go through the entire museum in the tour, which covers just a small part of it. covering the entire museum requires about a full day.
I turned up 20 minutes before the tour was to begin and waited until 10 minutes after we were supposed to leave, but nobody bothered to turn up. Emailed the company when i got back, but nobody bothered to get back to me either. Find a different guide, there are plenty around. Really disappointing
