After strolling around in busy and populated streets, we ended up here (behind the Palacio Nacional). Wonderful historical place hosting very creative temporary and permanent rooms, ranging from universal history to photos of a Dutch living in México (very nice exhibit). Park and walk, don’t...More

They have a well-thought selection of pieces from the Asian section, particularly. Roman section was less impressive because of the mediocre quality of the replicas. Just walked in because it was right next to Palacio Nacional. Good that Mexico has these sort of exhibitions to...More

If you have much free time, but already seen all Mexico highlights, you can visit this museum. Its exhibition dedicated to world culture, there are a lot of copies of world famous masterpieces (like ancient Grees sculptures etc.). One more advantage: the entrance is free.

This is a nice colonial building. Inside you can find artefacts from the past and from the present. It is very close to the Zocalo Plaza.
