Flavia Ramos: The Museum of Teotihuacan Culture lies within the archaeological site of Teotihuacan, which is south of the Pyramid of the Sun and it shows the developmental stages of Teotihuacan. Within this city there are bits and pieces that have been salvaged from the many on-site excavations. The museum also features a to-scale model of the archaeological site where the Sun Pyramid is seen through real glass. It’s really worth the short walk to get there and have a chance to see it. You can’t miss it if you’re in Teotihuacan, it’s very interesting and admission is free, you just have to present your proof
Of entrance to the archaeological site.

This is one of the most amazing museums in Mexico City.

Hélène et Mathieu: The site of Teotihuacan is so impressive, that after two or three hour visit, we tend to forget its museum. And it’s a shame, because it is full of treasures. First, it contains statues, frescoes and architectural details of the site that the capricious weather of the region destroyed. By discovering, and it adds to the grandeur of the city a fabulous artistic mastery. Similarly, many everyday objects such as pottery, jewelry, toys … Used to better represent Teotihuacan populated, colorful, alive. I have also discovered with astonishment graves where the deceased is decorated with human jaws, like a necklace. Statuettes and other divine representations around the local mystery cult, far from revealing all. Finally, for the more pragmatic, a massive reconstruction of the site serves as a benchmark in the ruins.

The large model will take the measure of the city, capital of the largest pre-Columbian empire. The museum helps to realize the immensity of the site and the cultural wealth of the Aztec people.

Kara Karita: It is a must-see when visiting the place. Although there is little to see, it is a must that when visiting the place, do not visit the museum, besides to one side you will find an inah shop with good articles and books, and with prices are accessible.
