My wife and I traveled through Mexico for over a month, visiting the fabulous ruins of the Toltecs, Aztecs, Maya, Olmecs, and so on, and staying in beautiful colonial towns absorbing the cultures of each region. We traveled central and southern Mexico from Aguascalientes to Chiapas along the Gulf Coast and returned north through Oaxaca, finishing up in Mexico City. One of the last places we visited was the Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City. Everything we experienced on our trip came together under one roof—was the perfect finishing touch to an amazing journey.

Mayans and Aztecs and Olmecs... Oh My!
During a business trip to Mexico City, I had a lunch hour (or two) to peruse the Museo Nacional de Antropología and took full advantage. As recommended, I picked up the audio guide in English and wandered the Teotihuacan exhibit in preparation for a day trip to the ruins outside of Mexico City. There was still time to check out the Aztec and Mayan exhibits and see a giant Olmec head sculpture. This is definitely a museum to spend a day in!
