Museums & Galleries

Situated on the site of Templo Mayor, the 4-story museum is dedicated to showcase the artifacts discovered from the archaeological site, both in and around the shrine. At the entrance of the museum lies the Tzompantli (translated as 'wall of skulls') that gives you a glimpse of the temple of Tenochtitlan prior to the arrival of Spanish rulers. Among the prized possession of the museum includes a sacrificial stone that is carved with the relief of Coyolxauhqui - the moon goddess. Besides, you can also find various artifacts, and sacrificial remains dedicated to various gods such as the God of war - Huitzilopochtli, the rain God - Tláloc and the God of fire - Xiuhtecutli. This state-of-the-art museum complex was built by Pedro Ramírez Vázque and was opened to public on October 12, 1987. Visit their website to know more.
