This has long been one of the World’s great museums. Everything about it is beautiful. Wondering in an out of the dramatic exterior and interior spaces, an architecturally brilliant and dramatic courtyard covered by what must be the world’s largest free-standing canopy - all held by a single post, like an umbrella - one is awed by the thousands of mesmerizing relics, artifacts and the pieces of monolithic art, all testament to remarkable ancient civilizations, now largely destroyed. The impact is unforgettable. One question kept creeping into my mind in this third visit: Where is the gold? Was it taken to Spain?

The size of this facility is overwhelming. Acres of parking, cultural galleries, Sanborns and overlooking the Horse racing facility. The galleries are clean a comfortable so there is no need to be in a hurry to take it all in.

Chido Tours

Traveling is one of the most amazing experiences in life, getting to know other countries, cultures and people from all over the world, will create memories for a lifetime, to archive this, careful planning and guidance is always recommended in order to have a seamless experience, although, sometimes, visiting an unknown country or city by yourself, can quickly transform a beautiful trip into a frustrating experience, at Chido Tours, we know this, we are a young and enthusiastic team that have been traveling around the world for many years, we have been in both sides, as a tourists and now as guides, and have learned that it not only takes to have a complete knowledge about the destination, but it requires to pay more attention to small details about our clients, getting to know them as much as possible to be able to provide a more personal adventure. Mexico City is a vast and beautiful place, we were born here and know about all the diversity in places and culture that it has to offe

I highly recommend Chido Tours. My girlfriend and I recently booked a day tour to the Basilica de Guadalupe and Teotihuacan and had the best time. The tour guide, Sandra, is very personable, charismatic, and knowledgeable. She provides history and insights into the places we visited. From the old churches to the ancient ruins of Teotihuacan, we learned so much about the places we visited and being there was awe inspiring.
The tours are fairly small (6 to 8 people), so it is almost like you have your own personal guide. Our group was really fun and we all enjoyed touring together... so much, in fact, that a number of us signed up for another tour to do together a few days later.

Parque Acuatico

Reviewed By EricRojo - Mexico City, Mexico

the park offers many fun water rides and areas for families and children.
a problem is that many rides are limited to certain height of children and this is not properly advertised at the entrance or in the website, causing great disappointment to short but very adventuresome kids.
while certain young ages are free (tikes) and others up to 10 are half price, there should be clear indications of restrictions such as other parks do.
the main lake is abandoned and the water dirty, of course there are no boats as advertised. some runs are closed making for less fun experience.
we will go back and hope that when we do all attractions are up and running to ensure we get full value for our tickets.

Palacio de Bellas Artes

This historic white marble building serves as both the city's top performance hall and an art museum.

Reviewed By JDSoui - Irving, Texas

The exterior of the building is simply amazing along with the interior.
The reason for the average ranking was due to sections of the museum being closed and/or not accessible. The exhibits on display were a more modern and that was not anticipated. The murals and paintings on the second floor though are simply breath-taking.
A recommendation for the public is this museum is a bit different in respect to having more modern displays than other museums such as the Prado in Madrid.
This is a must-see for the architecture and depending on ones taste for art, the expositions may or may not fit your taste.

Museo Memoria y Tolerancia

The Memory and Tolerance Museum delinates -in a didactic manner- the historical memory of the multiple genocides and crimes against humanity. The visit warns the viewer of the danger of difference, discrimination and violence in order to engender responsability, respect and consciousness in each and every person. Contemporary subjects are also presented in order to lead us to reflect on the role we wish to play in our every day lives. Tolerance, diversity, dialogue and empathy force us to see the commitment we all have to humanity. The visitor is invited to be generators of change through social action.

Allow yourself plenty of time for your visit to this incredibly well-documented museum. Avoid weekends if possible. Its well-worth the visit.Hello KatyZell, It is very important for us to know your comments and know how pleasant your visit was inside the Memory and Tolerance Museum.

Chapultepec Castle

This 18th-century palace, known for its impressive Gardens, served as the home of the Mexican President until 1939 and now houses the famous Museo Nacional de Historia.

Reviewed By cledson L

I highly recommend visiting this amazing place. It’s good for all peoples of all ages. The entrance fee is very affordable and the walk through the Museum is amazing. The whole park has much more to offer and you’d need at least two days to see it all. Note: the walk from the bottom up to the castle is a bit long but the management offers an elevator for people who can’t do it. It’s a must see!!!

Museo de Arte Popular

Reviewed By Stefanie H - Lincoln, Nebraska

This museum has three floors of exhibit halls, arranged by topic, such as religion, death, and home. The section on "the fantastico" is great! There are also videos and music showing the art being used in celebrations. The larger pieces on the ground floor are used on floats in parades, and they were moving some of them out for that purpose when we visited. Children have free admission, and the entire museum is light and airy. Highly recommend!
