One of the best museums I’ve ever been to. The Museo Nacional de Antropologia is amazing. It’s has so many wonderful things to see and learn about the history of Mexico civilization. A must to see in Mexico City.
The museum is very expansive. Multiple rooms surrounding a huge fountain. There are some signs in English, but it would be helpful to have a guide or the ubiquitous set of headphones to get the most out of the museum.
The place is just full of history and explanations of how the ancient civilizations used to live, which gives you a wider perspective of how civilized we were before the Europeans conquer America. The museum is incredibly organized and has extensive space for a lot...More

The day I went to the museum, there were no guides. Went to the information desk, and they knew nothing about guides. Went through the first floors of the entire facility in one day. Most of the exhibits are in Spanish. A few are in English. In the afternoon, I saw a few people with audio guides. When I asked if audio guides in English were available, I was told they were not from the museum, but from some private tour service.
While the museum is incredible, my impression is that the organization of guide services is haphazard and training of staff at the information desk is weak at best.
