Mexico City's Museums

Mexico City has some excellent museums, waiting to be explored and holding fascinating insight into the city's art, culture and history.

The art deco Palacio de Bellas Artes (Palace of Fine Arts) includes works by the great Mexican muralists, while the Museo Nacional de AntropologÍa (National Museum of Anthropology) tells the compelling story of Mexico's people. Here, you'll find huge collections that cover every major culture in Mesoamerican civilisation; from the Aztecs and Mayans to today's indigenous population. 

We also recommend paying a visit to the Museo Nacional de Historia (National History Museum), showcasing paintings, murals, ceramics and furniture from the Aztec era to the present day.
