about THE MUSEUM
It is designed to house and exhibit the archeological legacy of the peoples of Mesoamerica, as well as to account for the country's current ethnic diversity, in an impressive collection of more than 10,000 original pieces. It has 23 permanent exhibition halls, a temporary exhibition hall and two auditoriums. It also houses the collection of the National Library of Anthropology. The National Museum of Anthropology and History protects one of the treasures most appreciated by our culture, the Piedra del Sol (which is the heart of the exhibition), the monumental Teotihuacan sculptures dedicated to the gods of water, the treasure of the tomb of the King Pakal, the famous copy of the Moctezuma plume and the Tláloc monolith that guards the entrance to the Museum.
