This place is right in the middle of downtown. We spent around 2 hours touring the archeological zone and the museum. The museum is very well architected and easy to navigate. Great educational opportunity. The archeological zone is probably not wheel-chair accessible.

Walking around the site itself the signs are in pretty bad shape, so maybe read up on this ahead of time to get a feel for it before you go. The view from inside the museum through a huge wall of windows is pretty spectacular.

We saw the ruins from outside and decided to go in without expectations but were very pleasantly surprised not only by the ruins, which are always interested, but by the contents of the museum inside. The distribution is very smarty and modern and it is...More

An outstanding intimate museum focused on the excavations of the templo major, the original Aztec site. The museum is loaded with articles found on site including numerous interesting tribute objects and larger ceremonial pieces. Well worth the entrance fee (70 pesos) as you also get...More

I had the opportunity to see only from the outside, but is quite amazing to see ancient ruins in the middle of the city along with other type of constructions. Must see!

Yes. In fact, you'll have to check your larger bags anyway as they aren't allowed in. They will give you a claim number and you'll pick them up after.

The food is not allowed inside Museo Del Templo Mayor. There are may restaurants and food joints outside the Museum. You may also enjoy street side food too in nearby locations.
