The National Museum of Anthropology (Museo Nacional de Antropología) was designed by Pedro Ramirez Vasques and is the centerpiece of the Chapultepec museum district. The gallery spaces are located in low rise, late-modernist marble buildings around a large internal courtyard which is covered by a large canopy supported by a single carved bronze column. The building is surrounded by gardens which create a valuable buffer between the gallery spaces and Mexico City and are visible through large windows which let natural light into the gallery spaces. This important Mexican museum contains exhibitions that describe the history of Mexico and contains many important artifacts.

This is one of the best syncretism of Prehispanic and modern Mexican architecture. Open spaces confined by monumental architectures putting you in context with the elements cleansing you before you begin your journey across all of the Mexican cultures...
