Explore the rich indigenous history of Mexico through the vast collection of Museo Anahuacalli. Muralist Diego Rivera conceived and projected the museum now housing almost 50,000 pieces of pre-Hispanic history. The design of both the interior and the pyramid-like stone exterior all bear heavily influence from indigenous design, enhancing the overall experience. Inside, explore the countless artifacts, paintings, masks, and sculptures, as well as a small collection of Rivera's mural work. Be prepared to do a lot of walking; visit the top for an excellent view. To visit Museo Anahuacalli and other attractions in Mexico City, use our Mexico City vacation planner.

  • It was a very good experience, the Museum has everything a bit and allows you to learn more about the Mexican culture. Loved my 14 year old son

  • An impressive building inspired of antique civilization monuments. There is a weird ambiant inside. I really appreciated it ! 
  • If you go to the Anahuacalli, you spend an afternoon or morning away from the hustle and bustle of this city, transporting you to another time (the life of Diego Rivera). In the building is a work of art if it.

  • An impressive facade, but it could be improved if it respected both its guests and pieces more. The museum contains a wide selection of pre-hispanic sculptures, but the historical significance of many of them is insulted by the addition of modern modifications, which come in the form of golden metal decorations mounted on heads and the like. Ugly and out of place car tires were also mounted on some walls. Guests are not entirely free to roam inside but are forced to wait for a guide to take them on a tour. On the plus-side, the ticket included free entry to the Frida Kahlo museum, a fact that most other tourists had not realized, as it allowed us the skip the long lines just before closing time.
  • Combo ticket includes admission to Museo Frida Kahlo in Coyoacan -- come here first. There's questionable tire-based contemporary art scattered throughout, but you just can't beat the wild eccentricity of the space.
  • Ansient sense, historical, Diego rivera art.
  • This museum is really something.. when you arrive you normally wouldn't expect the building which is almost like a pyramid. The inside is also gorgeous and you'd be able to see from pre-hispanic art to huge murals painted by Diego Rivera.
  • This restaurant is by far the worst in Paris France. The service from the server, Marlo, and manager was disrespectful and rude. She kept pushing us all night and was annoyed with us. Instead of being appreciative that we were giving her business she was super rude. Do not come unless you want to be treated like trash. Go spend your money somewhere else!
