This is one of the most important museums in Mexico, so you have to go! They also usually have great temporary exhibitions too, so be sure to ask at the ticket office about that.

NileGuide Expert tip:
This is a big museum, so if you don't have enough time, you probably should decide beforehand what do you wanna see. The temporary exhibitions are great too, but most of the time they're big, so just consider those among the other exhibitions when you decide what to see. Be sure to ask for headphones at the ticket office, because all along the museum, you'll find computers with information in many languages. This is great if you have kids, because it's a tactile system, so it allows them to play AND learn at the same time. And be sure to look at the big portrait of a woman at the main entrance. Most people pass it by, but it was painted by Diego Rivera. That lady is Amparo Rugarcía de Espinosa Yglesias, wife of Manuel Espinosa Yglesias, an important banker and philanthropist and the founder of this museum, which was named after his wife.
