This fascinating archeological site and museum is adjacent to the Zocalo, a block from the cathedral. We hired an English speaking guide who helped interpret the site for us. Until the 1970s there were houses and businesses above this extensive and utterly riveting site. Early...More

The food is not allowed inside Museo Del Templo Mayor. There are may restaurants and food joints outside the Museum. You may also enjoy street side food too in nearby locations.
