The National Museum of Antropology is the greatest museum in the country and one of the finest museum of its kind in the world. Located at the Bosque de Chapultepec on the north side of Paseo de la Reforma, this extensive museum was constructed by the Mexican architect Pedro Ramírez Vásquez, in the early 1960s. Due to the huge scope of the collections displayed at this museum, visitors may not be covere its fascination information in a full day.

The museum is arranged on two floors, both dedicated to a particular geographic region and culture. The ground floor halls cover the Mexican societies and civilisations before the Spanish conquest. The upper level rooms are devoted to the way Mexico's Indian peoples live today. Interestingly, although with some exceptions, each ethnological exhibit upstairs covers the same territory as the archaeological section below it. Open Tuesday to Saturday from 9 am to 7 pm. Sunday and holidays from 10 am to 6 pm. Closed on Monday. Admission: 2 USD, free on Sunday
