The National Anthropology Museum of Mexico
If you had to choose just one cultural activity during your visit to Mexico City, this is the one!
AdvenCulture offers you a guided tour of this wonderful temple of Mexican archeology, ethnology and history.
Our approach to this visit is that you can walk away with a grasp of the amazing wealth and diversity of Mexico. This museum is considered one of the three best in the world in its category, not only because of its extraordinary collection of antiquities, but also due to its exquisite museography.
Our tour takes approximately two hours, and consists of the following sections:
- Introduction to the history of the museum and its exceptional museography
- The prehistory: a study of the species that preceded Homo Sapiens in the last ten million years, and how the American continent was populated
- A review of the the seven main Mesoamerican civilizations:
- Oaxaca: Zapotecas and Mixtecas
