Tips from locals
I'd recommend reserving an entire morning or afternoon to explore this massive area. Oh, and even if the fountain in the middle looks inviting, I wouldn't recommend running around in it...
Located within Chapultepec Park, it has significant archaeological and anthropological artifacts, such as the Aztec Calendar Stone. You´ll travel in time! You should not miss it.
The National Museum of Anthropology is one of the most important museum sites in Mexico and America, designed to house and exhibit the archeological legacy of the peoples of Mesoamerica, as well as to account for the country's current ethnic diversity.
Awesome, awesome museum. Don't spend too much time in the first rooms about prehistoric events, go directly to the great stone calendar and the jade mask..

Monument / Landmark
“It was built in 1910 during the presidency of Porfirio Diaz to commemorate the centennial of the beginning of Mexico´s War of Independence. Stays in Reforma - one of the iconic avenues of the city. A good program is go for a walk in Reforma (there is a lot of life all the time) and see the Angel at the same time. ”
