The city with the largest number of museums in the world
The Mexico City museums are among the best, and most renowned in the world. Downtown Mexico City has been an urban area since the pre-Columbian 12th century, so this rich history has shaped the city’s cultural values a great deal. The National Museum of Anthropology Chapultepec is one of the best museums worldwide, with a vast collection of sculptures, jewels and handcrafts from ancient Mexican cultures. Palacio de Bellas Artes houses some of Mexico’s finest murals, and the National History Museum in Chapultepec’s Castle contains a vast range of exhibits illustrating the history of Mexico since the Spanish conquest.
