National Museum of Anthropology, Mexico City

National Museum of Anthropology, Mexico City

The largest museum in Mexico is a treasure chest of archeological history.

Founded in 1964, Mexico City’s National Museum of Anthropology focuses on the country’s pre-Columbian history, with a collection that includes everything from Aztec headdresses to Mayan masks. The building is a sprawling 800,000 square feet and feels as monumental as the artifacts found within its walls thanks to the bold concrete design from architects Pedro Ramírez Vázquez, Jorge Campuzano and Rafael Mijares Alcérreca.
