    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

    An impressive collection of artifacts. Too much to absorb. Unfortunately there is barely any signage in English. I recommend hiring a guide who can point out the highlights and put them in context historically, identify the gods, and explain the symbols. In two hours my...More
