  • Amazing collection of pre- Hispanic art! The Architecture of f museum is nice and reminds us of a pyramid. That was the idea from Diego. Only complaint is the light: either to dark or to much light that reflecting! Don’t forget to look at the sealing, one can see awesome mosaic from Diego himself! Certainly a must do!
  • Another must see when in Mexico City. If you are interested in learning about the history of the country and some of its contributors then definitely visit Museo Anahuacalli. The view from the roof top is refreshing. Built from volcanic rocks each space was carefully designed. Just beautiful.
