1. Visit the National Museum of Anthropology (Museo Nacional de Antropología México)

With over 300 museums in Mexico City, it can be a daunting task to narrow down the ones you want to visit during your stay. Why not start at the beginning? The National Museum of Anthropology starts at the peopling of the Americas in 30,000 BC and goes all the way up to the Fifteenth Century. Short on time? I really enjoyed the Mexica room, which had a diagram of Tenochtitlan before the lake was drained and Mexico City was built on top of it, as well as some amazing sculptures. In the Maya room, you’ll find tombs and some reproduction temples outside. The museum is open Tuesday-Sunday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. year-round and costs only $64 MX pesos to enter.
