(4.9/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
Housing one of the leading Mesoamerican collections, Anthropology Museum represents the second-largest museum of its kind in Mexico. The museum showcases exhibits on three main cultures; the Olmecs, Totonacs, and Huastecs. You'll find about 27,000 artifacts within the museum--some date back to between 1,300 BCE and 900 BCE. See the giant Olmec heads or the smaller Totonac heads. View a sample of an old codex to view ancient writings.
