This is a don’t miss museum in Mexico City. The collection of folk are is as impressive, as it is vast. The museum building is also really interesting...open in the middle thus providing lots of light. There is a nice gift shop too.

This beautiful park was once the playground for the

Explanations should be in both languages. If someone is missing, you can always ask for the Manager incharge to have the matter solved.
