Great ruins preserved in the historic section of the city. Open to all and easy to enjoy. Near the cathedral too.

I really enjoyed these ruins and accompanying museum. The crowds were a bit intense but hard to believe they are so accessible. Not a lot of climbing but a good deal walking.

Honestly, there was so much to see that it started to run together and we had to leave. I wouldn't waste much time with the exterior ruins as there is a large museum at the back of the ruins site.

Just steps away from the Cathedral. Very interesting outdoor excacation site and well organized museum. There's a room where you must leave water bottles before entering museum. My water and snacks were safe.

It's just crazy. It's crazy to walk around this huge city with all of it's gorgeous tall buildings and find these ruins right in the middle of it. What a treasure. I can't imagine what they haven't even found yet, but these are really amazing...More

We got there early in the day which was good as there was a huge queue by the time we left. Ruins themselves fascinating and well explained and the museum also superb. Enjoyed seeing so many children interested in their own history too.

Yes. In fact, you'll have to check your larger bags anyway as they aren't allowed in. They will give you a claim number and you'll pick them up after.

The food is not allowed inside Museo Del Templo Mayor. There are may restaurants and food joints outside the Museum. You may also enjoy street side food too in nearby locations.
