Enrich your tour of the city with a history lesson at Museo Nacional de Antropologia, one of Mexico's premier cultural institutions. Established in 1964, this comprehensive museum contains important artifacts from the country's pre-Columbian past. Major highlights include an Aztec stone calendar and a 16th-century statue of Xochipilli, Aztec god of art, games, flowers, and song. After you piece together Mexico's pre-Hispanic past, visit the upper display halls to learn how the country's indigenous cultures live today. Rent an audio guide at the entrance if you wish to explore on your own, or join one of the museum's free guided tours. Plan your visit to Museo Nacional de Antropologia and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Mexico City day trip website.

Museo Nacional de Antropologia reviews
We had the most amazing visit because we took the free English highlights of the museum tour at 11:00 a.m. It was so worth it!

We really enjoyed the whole experience. The sacred objects were powerful with many tales to tell. We loved getting to know more about the history of the ancient civilizations in Mexico.

A great museum, large site and much to see. Clearly had some real thought put into the design and layout, including some outside spaces you can walk through which was lovely and shielded the view of the road which was nice. The price is very reasonable at 85 pesos per person and they take card which is useful (national museum of art only took cash and charges c20% more if using US dollars) Bag storage area if you’re carrying a rucksack which is well organised, and mandatory - you can keep small bags but not rucksacks around nor water bottles. Really enjoyed this and spent a couple of hours there, didn’t use the restaurant but is one for a break. Would recommend getting here early, we were there for 10am opening as by the time we came out around noon there were queues to get in and a wait. We also went in a week day as we could. There were translations into English on not all, but many sections so we were able to read quite a bit to understand the context of the pieces
Prepare to spend all day here, it is a huge establishment that has so many artifacts, sculptures and monuments. I love that it has indoor and outdoor parts that allow you to see lots of different things. I spent 2 hours here and i barely got through 1/3 of the exhibits! I think this is a must-see, one of the best museums I’ve ever been to. Also, most of the exhibits have English translations as well!
