Museo Nacional de Antropología, Ciudad de Mexico

Museo Nacional de Antropología, the National Anthropology Museum is located in Chapultepec area of one of the largest cities on this planet, Mexico city. It's the biggest and the best museum of Mexico, showcasing the best of Mexican anthropology. There are findings from almost every part of Mexico displaying the rich heritage of Mayas, Aztecs, Mixtecs, Zapotecs and other tribes/civilizations that once existed in Mexico. Especially for me after having seen places like Tulum, Coba, Chichen-Itza, Yaxchilan, Bonampak, Tikal, Monte Alban, Mitla, Zaachila, Palenque and other ruins, this place was very enlightening and here I got a chance explore the same in greater details. The interiors of the pyramids have been well displayed, the artistic findings have been well preserved, the murals have been well reproduced and the history is well explained. It costs about 51 pesos to enter this museum and costs one whole day to see the entire museum. At this point I'm gonna stop being wordy and below are the photographs that give a glimpse of what you can find in museum. But take my words, if you ever get a chance to land on North American continent, don't miss this museum.
