What to Expect
Almost half a century after its creation, the National Museum of Anthropology remains the flagship enclosure safeguarding the legacy of the Mexican indigenous people. It stands as a symbol of identity and mentor to generations seeking to dig into their cultural roots.
Your guide will enlighten you about the various exhibits and their significance. As you pore over objects excavated from archeological sites, covering vast territories in what is now modern-day Mexico, you'll learn about the various cultures that created them.
Explore rooms where small objects such as spear points are on exhibit, used by early hunters on the continent more than 10,000 years ago. See simple clay pieces used in both daily life and as symbolic articles in religious ceremonies. Admire impressive objects like the sun stone, or Aztec calendar. Your guide will explain the meaning of these valuable contributions to Mexico, as well as the ways historians have been challenged to re-think the development of the Mesoamerican people including Mayan, Aztec and Zapotec cultures. You'll have free time to explore the museum on your own after the tour.
