Venture inside the stunning monument, and discover rooms of classical European ornamentations. Stroll the halls full of light and discover stairways made of marble.

Admire the sculptures and busts of historical figures, such as Emperor Cuauhtémoc and the Spanish Conquistador Hernán Cortés, along the way. Then depart Chapultepec Castle (also known as the "National Museum of History") and break for lunch, before going to the National Museum of Anthropology.

The guided tour of the Anthropology museum and Chapultepec castle was good. Jaime is a good guide and his explanations are interesting. However, the group started with 24 people. It ended with about 12. 24 is way too big for a museum tour. No microphones or headsets. It took 45 minutes for the guide to check everyone in and get the entrance tickets. There is a lot of walking including up hill to get to the castle.

Abbiamo fatto il tuor guidato al Museo di Antropologia e al castello di Chapultepec con Carla, una guida preparatissima, simpatica e puntuale. Le cose da vedere erano davvero tante ma lei ha saputo darci un excursus delle nozioni principali per addentrarsi nella storia mesoamericana e messicana. Un tour che consiglio assolutamente! Grazie Carla!

We had visited the Museum of Anthropology years ago and found it amazing, but we didn't feel we had enough time. This time, with a guide, we saw far less of the museum, but we learned a lot more. I would recommend taking the tour, then returning on your own. Give yourself a lot of time. From there, we walked to Chapultapec Castle to continue the tour. We ended after 4 hours (instead of 6) but I think the group was tired and hungry and our brains were full by then. If you are not up for a lot of walking and standing, be sure to mention it while scheduling. There isn't a lunch scheduled, so bring snacks. Our guide allowed us to stop and buy some food and cold drinks in Chapultapec Park, which got us through. Our guide was knowledgeable and personable. I really enjoyed gaining a better understanding of the symbols and context for the exhibits.
