Mexico City: Anthropology Museum Guided Visit

Enter the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City almost a half century after it was established, and discover why it remains the flagship enclosure safeguarding the legacy of the Mexican indigenous people. Standing as a symbol of identity and a mentor to generations seeking to dig into their cultural roots, the museum is the most popular in Mexico, attracting some 2 million visitors per year. Get insights into the various exhibits and their significance from your guide. Look at objects excavated from archaeological sites, covering vast territories in what is now modern-day Mexico. Learn about the various cultures that created them. Visit rooms where small objects, such as spear points are on display. These were used by early hunters on the continent more than 10,000 years ago. See simple clay pieces used in daily life and as symbolic articles in religious ceremonies. Admire impressive objects such as the Stone of the Sun (Aztec calendar stone). Your guide will explain the meaning of these valuable contributions to Mexico, as well as the ways historians have been challenged to re-think the development of the Mesoamerican people including Mayan, Aztec and Zapotec cultures. Enjoy some free time to explore the museum on your own after the guided tour.

It just include half of the museum. Maybe this information should be mentioned on the details. The guide “Edith” was great. She really dominate the all details about the pieces. Which is really important :) we continued to explore the other half of the museum by ourselves.

Empezamos tarde, debimos esperar los cumplidos, por esperar a los no cumplidos. Demasiado detalle en la información, debieran aclarar que es un tour para estudiosos del. Tema. Una hora y media después abandoné por físico aburrimiento y no habíamos avanzado mucho.

Realmente un tour muy completo, mi guía Lourdes fue muy amena , a demás de que me explico con lujo de detalles cada sala que visitamos, ella nos respondió a cada duda que surgía de forma muy clara y precisa.

El guia llego 20 minutos tarde, junto varios grupos en uno, fuimos 33 personas, y mezclaron gente que hablaba dos idiomas. A los 10 minutos de iniciar el tour, la mitad del grupo se fue por su cuenta, ni siquiera se escuchaba al guia. Muy Mal Servicio, una ESTAFA, lamentable.

Our guide, Rodolfo, was extremely knowledgeable and has excellent communication skills. He gave us an in depth tour of some of the rooms of the museum, four hours worth. We learned so much and enjoyed every minute!

We had 6 people 5 of which spoke English. Guide proceeded w the tour saying things in English and than repeating the same in Spanish which was annoying and very ineffective use of time. There was no warning on the website about that guidance will be given I. Two languages.

Guiden verkade inte så kunnig. Guidningen var både på spanska och engelska. Svårt att förstå guidens engelska. Hoppade av guidningen och gick runt själv istället.

Our guide was wonderful and knowledgeable. Her accent made it a little hard to understand, but she had pretty good English. We learned a lot more having a guide. Finding the guide was very difficult - she had a shirt on from a different company and it was unclear where exactly at the front of the museum to meet so that was very frustrating. It took 20 minutes from the appointed meeting time to find her.

The museum is interesting, beautiful and very big. Unfortunately little written information in english. We booked an english guide for that reason, the guide was very knowlageable although lacked in the english language as we specified so the experience became not to our full expectation.
