Museum
“The Museum of Anthropology is the most visited museum in the country, containing one of the world’s largest collections of Mayan artifacts, from pre-Columbian Mexico and pre-Hispanic civilizations up to the time of the Spanish conquest. The museum is located in a building designed by Pedro Ramirez Vazquez in 1963; a piece of architectural artwork itself. A single column supports the renowned umbrella roof, symbolizing the three important pre-Hispanic symbols of a mythological tree, eagles and jaguars.”
