This museum is very, very big. On the lower floor there are 12 exhibition halls, which show the different regions of Mexico, and one especially for the Maya culture; on the upper level you can see a collection of clothing, housings, and utensils of the 56 still existing local cultures in Mexico. You can easily spend a day in this really interesting museum. It is really interesting to visit this museum before you start exploring the different archeologically sites all across Mexico.
One of the highlights is the Calendar Stone. This is the beautiful Calendar Stone or the Sun Stone. The earth or Sun God in the middle is surrounded by the 20 symbols of the Aztec calendar. It is forbiden to make photos with a flash, so the picture I added is a postcard that I bought in the museumshop.
The diameter of this stone is 3,6 m and the weight is 24 ton.
