A must see when you visit Mexico City. Allow a minimum of 4-5 hours to absorb the History. A well laid out Museum and good value for money.

Amazing museum that has a tremendous number of artifacts to look at. Plan on spending at least a day here. Well organized, but a lot to take in all at once. Did not make it to the second floor. Lunch in restaurant was very good.

Thank onoman
