Browse the exhibits of the largest and most visited museum in Mexico. Start the tour from the ground floor, slowly exploring thousands of archaeological artifacts. Enjoy a riveting commentary by your guide on the mythology of Mesoamerican cultures and how they have influenced modern Mexican society.

Marvel at the colossal stone heads of the Olmec civilization, dating back to the Early Preclassic period. Browse a large collection of amazing murals and a replica of the intricate lid from Pakal’s tomb in the Mayan Room. Admire a small-scale model of the ancient capital of Tenochtitlan, which is now Mexico City. See the centerpiece of the museum’s collection, the Aztec Stone of the Sun. Dating back to the 1400s, this calendar has been hailed by archaeologist Zelia Nullal as the “remarkable monument ever discovered on the American continent.”
