Old displays could be better

The museum was good back in the '70s when I first visited but appears to have changed little since then. Shame since this is one of the reasons many tourist come to Mexico

Well preserved, this site makes good use of artifacts displayed to easily see the intracacies and the expertise of ancient peoples. Take a guide for an English interpreter.

Neighbourhood Profile
Xochimilco
Xochimilco is one of the most ancient and natural parklands around the city. Used as an important agricultural area since the Pre-Hispanic era, it holds a great variety of flora and fauna that you can witness while canoeing on your own or taking a ride in a classic trajineras (gondola-like boats) decorated with juniper and flowers. Enjoy some Mexican antojitos while sipping a bit of mezcal or tequila and listen to the mariachis and marimbas playing tunes from other colorful chinampas (artificial islands). Aside from the canals, you can find unique Pre-Hispanic art collections at the Archaeological Museum of Xochimilco after talking a walk through its classic streets and visiting the majestic ahuehuete tree that prevails in the heart of this neighborhood at Jardín Juárez.
