This site is a must when visiting Mexico City. You will learn a lot of the Pre-hispanic history of Mexico.

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.
