    Great to check out & say you've been here but the Museum of Archeology offers a more expansive selection of exhibits.

Description

You are sure to marvel at how Museo del Templo Mayor showcases Mexican culture, from pre-Hispanic artifacts like those from the Aztec Empire in the 1300s to the Spanish cathedral and the modern-day Latino Tower. Opened in 1987, the museum features thousands of archaeological sculptures throughout the eight halls, including the wall of skulls pyramid as well as the Tlaloc and Huizilopochtli shrines. You can observe musical instruments, urns and the 10-foot stone disk of moon goddess Coyolxauhqui. Information signs are in English and Spanish. Remember to bring sunscreen and a hat for summer days since a large portion of the exhibits and ruins are outdoors.
