Museo de Antropologia

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by dcdc75 on June 29, 2006

One of the greatest anthropological museums in the world, Museo de Antroplogia showcases the crossing of first hunter-gatherers from Asia onto North America. It also has magnificent archaeological exhibits from early Mesoamerican societies. The museum also features ethnological displays on Mexico's current Amerindian groups. Some of the finest pieces of prehispanic art anywhere in the world, can be found here. The museum also has outdoor exhibits. It was pretty fun to poke around typical Mayan monuments. Admission is about $5 and no flash photography is allowed.
