The two museums are closed without notice or warning. The site itself is fine but paths and doorways are randomly closed. Very difficult to navigate. It's free, but not worth the effort of coming here. Very poor organization.

When I went to Tlatelolco, I was its sole visitor, which creeped me out a bit, as the neighborhood in which it is located felt a bit dicey. There is also a museum near the ruins, which was closed, and an ugly but imposing old...More

In combination with Teotihuacan, Xochicalco, and the Templo Mayor (Tenochtitlan) you'll really want to visit this site to enrich your understanding of ancient settlements in the Mexico City area. This modest but fascinating site has a nice little museum, friendly staff, and is also literally...More
