Within a few hundred yards of the Zocolo are the restored ruins of this immense Aztec temple. There was no line at 11 AM on a Friday, admission was 75 pesos, $4.50, US, a bargain! This includes a wonderful museum. There are many descriptive plaques...More

The multilayered tilting ruins are amazing and literally right next to immense colonial buildings that are built upon more Aztec ruins. Some of the interiors have intact artwork and so me of the buried exteriors have intact decoration as well. What makes the quality of...More

I can't figure out what used to cover these ruins. They are massive and the museum puts it all in perspective. Well worth the visit!

This is a must visit. We went there on a Sunday afternoon when it is free for all Mexicans and supposedly the worst time to visit- we took just 5 minutes to get in. It costs 75 pesos to get a ticket. You cannot take...More

Bt visiting the ruins, Templo Mayor, and the associated museum you can get a clear picture of the accomplishments of the Mexica, Aztecs. Too much popular attention paid to the sacrifices which detracts immeasurably from the greatness of their cultural achievements. As you stand in...More

Just off the Zocalo, by the Cathedral. You can see much of the ruins from the street without going in - but you’re going to miss a lot. The temple was enlarged in 7 distinct phases. It is thought to have been sited where the...More

This is a unique, 'must see' museum, amazing to see and understand its juxtaposition to the nearby cathedrals and Zocalo. You can see some of it for free from above, but for a minimal fee -it is definitely worth walk amongst the ruins, then seeing...More

Hi! There was no line when I was there in July and it wasn't crowded either - I guess it would depend when you are traveling there? anyone else?
