You walk through a set of ramps and stairs on the outside of the museum where you can look down on some of the ruins. Lots of signage (in both English and Spanish) that provides a lot of information. Museum is at end of walk,...More

In the middle of the current city, lies some of the ancient ruins of the original city. Many areas can be seen without entrance and having just returned from the pyramids, underwhelming, but interesting. So much to see and do!

Our initiation to Mexico City was a trip here, with the stunning ruins themselves and a pre-Colonial museum that rivals anything but the Anthropological Museum.

I am a big history buff, so I would have loved to have spent more time in here. My husband wanted to leave sooner. It was awesome!

We stumbled across this at night. What a sight to see. So amazing! We didn't get to go in the museum however had tours about pyramids so we basically knew what we were seeing. Very pretty both night and day.

It was great to see everything first hand at the site. I only wish the movie in the beginning was subtitled in English

Amazing museum of history of the life of the Aztecs before and after the Spanish conquest. The house of the eagles is beautiful and you can still feel the atmosphere of meditation that one day prevailed. Free admission to teachers and students with ID

The site is fascinating and incredible to see in context, surrounded by the colonial center built atop it. The adjoining museum contains stunning pieces.

A must-see in Mexico City. The story behind it and the museum and both worth the entrance fee. In the heart of the Historic Centre.

Hi! There was no line when I was there in July and it wasn't crowded either - I guess it would depend when you are traveling there? anyone else?

Yes. In fact, you'll have to check your larger bags anyway as they aren't allowed in. They will give you a claim number and you'll pick them up after.
