National Museum of Anthropology

This world-class museum is a must-see in Mexico City

Even if you’re not a museum fan, you shouldn’t miss a visit to this collection – it is regarded as one of the best in the world. Look for the giant Olmec heads, the Atlantean-men statues from Tula and the Aztec Calendar Stone from Tenochtitlan, amongst many fine and memorable exhibits.
