It's just crazy. It's crazy to walk around this huge city with all of it's gorgeous tall buildings and find these ruins right in the middle of it. What a treasure. I can't imagine what they haven't even found yet, but these are really amazing...More

We got there early in the day which was good as there was a huge queue by the time we left. Ruins themselves fascinating and well explained and the museum also superb. Enjoyed seeing so many children interested in their own history too.

I was expecting to tour the ruins and was pleasantly surprised at the extensive well designed museum. The museum levels mirrored the temples excavated on the site. Many signs were translated into English.

I highly recommend visiting Templo Mayor and paying the 70 Pesos entrance. You get to walk through the layers of ruins and visit the museum. The site here is very interesting, I won't go on a history rant, but suggest researching a little about Tenochtitlan...More

New archeological findings and improvements to the site, make a visit worthwhile. And of course, right after that visit you can wonder inside the Cathedral, which is the oldest of its type in America.

Go at night to see the lighting, go at day to tour the site from boardwalks. Then look at the Capital city of Mexico sinking into an ancient lakebed. World class viewing.

Centro Historico
The beating heart of the city lies within Centro
Histórico, the vast expanse of historical buildings
and monuments that are a must when exploring Mexico
City. Places such as the Museo Biblioteca Palacio
Postal, Casa de los Azulejos and Palacio de Bellas
Artes are the perfect eye candy for anyone seeking to
admire arts and architecture. Don't forget to visit
the wide variety of markets and plazas where any

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.

The food is not allowed inside Museo Del Templo Mayor. There are may restaurants and food joints outside the Museum. You may also enjoy street side food too in nearby locations.
