This museum is one of the most important places to visit in Mexico to better understand the evolution of the country and its civilization. It shows through a very big collection of artifacts how our society has transformed from being nomadic hunters to the Teotihuacans,...More

Had a good visit here . You can definitely spend a few hours here but if you are not really an enthusiast then it kind of gets old after an hour

What a Treasure! So much history on display in this fantastic museum. Lots of great information in English available throughout the museum. The Gift shop was great, too. Tip: proceed to the left of the entrance for a free backpack/coat hold.

The museum is beautiful! It is incredibly well organized with many exhibits and outdoor displays within gardens. We were going to the Teotihuacan pyramids, so we wanted to gather as much historical information that we could. We left feeling well informed. We also learned that...More

This is an enormous place and a great place. The only negative thing is most of the information is in Spanish. For English speakers there is very less text available with the displayed items.

Very interestering museum, but most information only in Spanish. Maybe you need to concentrate on specific items and study them before you go to get the most out of your visit.

Yes. Most of the museum is wheelchair accessible. In fact, there were many physically challenged people touring the exhibits as there was a competition in the city for para-olympic athletes.

Hi. I don't think I paid - but if I did it was very minimal. The price quoted by the other wrtier sounds about right for Mexican Museums - they really are inexpensive to visit.
