Tips for visiting the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City

Most people spend between two and three hours in the Museo Nacional de Antropología. The place is pretty huge, so depending on the time you have, you might want to prioritize flashing your Museo Nacional de Antropología tickets quite early and concentrate on certain areas of the museum before the crowds arrive. This should maximize your enjoyment of the awesome collections inside.

If you have only limited time, don't miss the Teotihuacan, Aztecs and Maya rooms.

Yes! There's a great restaurant at Museo Nacional de Antropología called Sala Gastronómica. The freshly made toasted sandwiches and coffee of all kinds come highly recommended. Once you've used your National Museum of Anthropology tickets to explore the exhibits, don't miss out on a lovely lunch to round off your visit!

Everyone has a different favorite exhibit that makes their Museo Nacional de Antropología tickets seem like the best ever purchase, but there are several must-sees at what is arguably one of the most respected anthropology museums in the world.

Museo Nacional de Antropología is home to an Aztec Sun Stone (Piedra del Sol). This is a 25-ton intricately carved basalt slab that describes Aztec life, and it's thought to have been carved in the late 1400s. Another highlight is a partial reconstruction of the unfathomably huge Temple of Quetzalcoatl from Teotihuacán.

The best time to visit Museo Nacional de Antropología is during the week, when you're less likely to experience big crowds.

Free guided tours are offered Tuesday through Saturday at 10:30, 12:30, 13:30, 15:00 and 17:00. To ensure you don't get stuck with the weekend crowds, avoid using your tickets on a Sunday. This is the day that Mexican residents get free admission.

With tickets to Mexico City's Museo Nacional de Antropología, or the National Museum of Anthropology, you have an entirely new education ahead.

Learn about the Aztecs, Maya, and other ancient civilizations. Get up close to the amazing Sun Stone (Calendar Stone) and learn its history and backstory. Educate yourself with a world-famous repository of almost 600,000 objects and art relating to Mexico. Plus, see anthropological, ethnological, and archaeological materials dating from the pre-Hispanic period.

Six Flags Mexico

Ever wondered what it feels like to fly like Superman, or how it would feel to save Metropolis with the Justice League? You can find out at Six Flags Mexico City. There are eight themed areas inside the park, including zones dedicated to the Looney Tunes, DC heroes, and a number of countries around the world.
