  • We arrived by subway, entered the University, and we moved there by taxi (although there are a few buses that also lead) to the classical building of the Unam (the library). In the building that is in front in parallel, there is an office where you are applying for your data and make you an explanation of the entire building, architects, the location, origin, etc. It is free, is not paid and is super full. Museums, there is in the Faculty of physics and Faculty of architecture had an exhibition.

Many new buildings - Concert Hall Netzahualcóyotl, University Library with millions of books, 65 million manuscripts. Very well organized. Well maintained grounds, art by Ruffíno Tamayo, botanical features, Großskulptruen. CA 2 hours time are required.
