This museum is a marathon, not a sprint, but it's worth it to see the whole thing. Have a big breakfast and go early in the day and wear comfortable shoes.

It is really a world class museum. Beautiful concept with outside space in the park, and beautiful fountain in the courtyard, not just inside. This completes the visit to pyramids in Teotihuacan, Chichen Itza, Coba, Tikal (though the last one is in Guatemala)… Without seeing...More

Very little in English- we hired an English speaking guide which was helpful. Impossible to see the entire Museum- we spent too much time in the first room( the introduction) don't miss this Museum- worth the guide
