Full description
Enter the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City almost a half century after it was established, and discover why it remains the flagship enclosure safeguarding the legacy of the Mexican indigenous people. Standing as a symbol of identity and a mentor to generations seeking to dig into their cultural roots, the museum is the most popular in Mexico, attracting some 2 million visitors per year.

Get insights into the various exhibits and their significance from your guide. Look at objects excavated from archaeological sites, covering vast territories in what is now modern-day Mexico. Learn about the various cultures that created them.

Visit rooms where small objects, such as spear points are on display. These were used by early hunters on the continent more than 10,000 years ago. See simple clay pieces used in daily life and as symbolic articles in religious ceremonies.

Admire impressive objects such as the Stone of the Sun (Aztec calendar stone). Your guide will explain the meaning of these valuable contributions to Mexico, as well as the ways historians have been challenged to re-think the development of the Mesoamerican people including Mayan, Aztec and Zapotec cultures.

Enjoy some free time to explore the museum on your own after the guided tour.
