Mexico City – Chapultepec – Museo Nacional de Antropología – The Olmecs

As I mentioned in my previous post on the Aztecs, the Museo Nacional de Antropología (closed Monday but open every other day from 9am to 7pm) is so large, you won’t be able to see it in one go, or even five goes, so you have to choose wisely.

I only saw the Aztec and the Oaxaca Area displays. The latter includes the Olmecs who are a favourite of mine, due to their amazing sculptures of large stone heads (see the very last picture).

Click on a photo to go to full screen slideshow mode (recommended).

So much fascinating art, I can’t wait to go back to see the other exhibits.

Should you need it, here’s my Google map.
