    One of the most well curated and well laid out museums I have ever seen. Come on the early side and prepare to spend AT LEAST 3-4 hours here. There is certainly enough to see. This museum plus a nice leisurely stroll through Chapultepec Park is a perfect Mexico City day.

    This is a vast and amazing museum, housing many of Mexico's anthropological treasures. Exhibits range from pre-Hispanic civiliations to Mexico's current day indigenous cultures, with piece upon piece from each era. The displays are very well presented and have Spanish and English signage too. One tip--consider picking just a couple eras/regions to visit and call it a day...the museum in its entirety is just too large to take in in one visit.

    This is a great museum in Chapultepec park. Impressive building with a neat fountain. It has the best collection of sculptures, jewels and handcrafts from ancient Mexican cultures, and took us several hours to see everything.

    The National Museum of Anthropology is home to hundreds of exhibits detailing the history behind the human race. You'll see skeletons from our early ancestors as well as many examples of native art and culture. This expansive facility stretches some four square kilometers and is filled to the brim with interesting bits of history. You may have not come to Mexico City for the museums, but this is among the most complete anthropological collections in the world and it should not be missed if you have the opportunity to stop by.

    What a beast of a museum! There's so much variety to the richness of this place, with artifacts from both Teoticuacan and Chichen Itza ancient civilizations - when my girlfriend and I went, I think the exhibit that really jumped at us was the actual/reconstruction of the missing link - Lucy. YOU GOT TO CHECK IT OUT! and don't forget to stop by the gift store - it's almost another museum in itself

    Museo Nacional de Antropología, Arqueología e Historia del Perú Review

    The country's most extensive collection of pre-Columbian artifacts can be found at this sprawling museum. Beginning with 8,000-year-old stone tools, Peru's history is peeked at through the sleek granite obelisks of the Chavín culture, the intricate weavings of Paraca peoples, and the colorful ceramics of the Moche, Chimú, and Inca civilizations. A fascinating pair of mummies from the Nazca region are thought to be more than 2,500 years old; they are so well preserved that you can still see the grim expressions on their faces. Not all the exhibits are labeled in English, but you can hire a guide for S/15.

    Probably the biggest must-see in Mexico City, and for good reason. Honestly, I'm not a huge museum fan, especially for archaeology. But what's great about this one is that it's divided into two levels: downstairs are the actual archaeological relics and things, and upstairs are displays on culture and people in Mexico. The diversity in the country is amazing, and it's impressive to see it all in one place (though I did think how odd it would be to be one of those indigenous people and come see yourself in a museum display!).

    Mexico City has the biggest museum offer in the world, and you shouldn´t miss the main one. This museum will explain you in a very detailed way the living of our ancestors, from north to south, from east to west.
    You will find several original pieces which will make you think how it was possible for a culture to have all that knowledge during that time.
    Mexico is not only about the Mayans.

    Seriously: plan to spend an entire day here. It's the size of a city block and packed with some of the most fascinating relics in Latin America. You'll feel like a relaxed version of Indiana Jones.

    One of the most comprehensive museums of archeology in the world. Outstanding collection of artifacts including the iconic Aztec Calendar of the Sun and don't miss the massive statue of the rain god Tlaloc outside the museum.
