Museo de Antropologia Tips (31)

Museo Nacional de Antropologia

The impressive "Museo Nacional de Antropologia" is a must see of not only the city, but Mexico itself. It is one of the best museums about the Mexican and Meso-American civilizations. I ventured through its endless exhibitions for half a day. If you feel burned out, then head outside for a brake. If hunger calls, then head to the cafeteria, which offers delicious food.

Note: the picture is of the central fountain in the compounds. It pales in comparison to the thousands of treasures inside the halls.

Museo de Antropologia

El Museo Nacional de Antropologia is located in the Bosque de Chapultepec.
Best is to take the metro till the station of Chapultepec, and then you can walk through this big park, which this Bosque de Chapultepec is. This museum is very, very big. On the lower floor there are 12 exhibition halls, which show the different regions of Mexico, and one especially for the Maya culture; on the upper level you can see a collection of clothing, housings, and utensils of the 56 still existing local cultures in Mexico. You can easily spend a day in this really interesting museum. It is really interesting to visit this museum before you start exploring the different archeologically sites all across Mexico.

The National Museum of Anthropology will be of great interest to anyone who anyone who is interested in the pre-Colombian indian cultures of Mexico. This headdress is a replica of the one worn by the Aztec emporer Moctezuma. It is made of quetzal feathers. The original headdress is in a museum in Europe. This museum also has the Aztec calendar stone.
In front of the museum is an indian statue of Tlaloc, god of rain. It is said that when the statue was placed in front of the museum, it rained for days and days in Mexico City.

This is an excellent museum, offering exhibits on pre-columbian archeology and modern day anthropology. Inside there is a very creative fountain.
