Chapultepec Castle

Located on a hill in Chapultepec Park, Chapultepec Castle (Castillo de Chapultepec), is the only Royal Castle in the Americas, previously housing royals Maximilian I and Empress Carlota and several Mexican presidents. It also served as a military academy and an observatory, and now the National Museum of History (Museo Nacional de Historia).

There is quite a nice garden on top, a view over the park and out to the city (you can spot the giant Mexican flag in the Zocalo), beautiful stain-glass windows, red-carpet staircase, etc.

Entrance MX$51
Walk from Metro Chapultepec.
Daily 09:00 ~ 17:00

National Museum of Anthropology

The National Museum of Anthropology (Museo Nacional de Antropología) is within Chapultepec Park in Mexico City. The museum houses archaeological & anthropological artifacts from the pre-Columbian heritage of Mexico and is definitely worth checking out. There are some great artefacts including the Aztec Stone of the Sun, Olmec colossal heads, Mayan Ruins etc.

Much of the information is also translated in English if you want to read up on what your looking at, and you can spend an entire day here if you really wanted to do. However if you just want to walk around and look at the cool stuff it takes 1-2hours. Don’t miss the outdoor sections with larger artefacts too.

Tickets are MX$50
Walk from Auditorio or Chapultepec Stations, in the general Chapultepec Park area but on the main road.

Tues – Sun – 09:00 ~ 19:00
