Travel: Anthropology National Museum
Anthropology National Museum is a must see in Mexico City. There is a market just outside the entrance, so it’s a busy area! The wait to get in was about 30 minutes, yet it’s nice to people watch and take in the atmosphere. Okay, let’s check out some photos.

A couple of tips – don’t try and cut in line, it doesn’t work out well. Secondly, don’t put your feet (even cross your legs and sit on them) on the benches – I was warned! You can’t take in any food or water (even an empty water bottle won’t make it past the guards). All in all, just follow the rules and you’ll be good!
We started the at the bottom right corner and made our way counter clockwise. Don’t forget to venture outside – so many pieces are too big to be brought in the interior that you have to venture out to see them.
The circle above reminded me of our visit to Chichen Itza – the stadium where they played this game of getting a ball in hoops. If I recall correctly, the loser died. Not much fun.
Here are some pieces we saw when we headed outside – so beautiful!
Well, there you have it – a quick sneak peak into our visit of the Anthropology National Museum. My favourite piece? The art below – it’s moody, layered, and full of complexity. I like the woodsiness of it.
Okay, so if you’re even in Mexico City, check out the museum. It’s centrally located and surrounded by such lush greenery that you’ll be happy you visited. Grab a coffee and enjoy the walk to the entrance, people watch while you wait in line, then enjoy the history and the culture of the area.
Well, there you go – a few pictures from our tour. Thanks so much for visiting! Enjoy the rest of your week.
