  • This was one of the finest museums I have ever seen. The museum integrates technology seamlessly into the exhibits. There is just enough on each civilization to keep one stimulated and intrigued about the grandeur and artistic skill of each culture, but not too much to tire the viewer. The museum paints a powerful narrative, connecting the viewer to the present day. It also showcases a magnificent armour collection and exotic music instruments. Some of the instruments include a clarinet given by Beethoven to a boy, and Karas' zither from The Third Man. I wish the armour collection had an English translation, and that they had some music playing (or sound effects for the instruments on display) in the music instrument area.
  • Gratis entrance for Mexicans with ID. Beautiful museum with great collection as well of authentic recognition of colonialism. Extremely friendly staff and perfect installations. Highly recommend.
