It contains the world’s largest collection of ancient Mexican art and ethnographic exhibits about Mexico’s indigenous groups. With 23 permanent exhibit halls, the museum has plenty to explore, even from the comfort of your couch.

Virtual visitors can browse through an Aztec exhibit, cultural areas, Oaxaca and Maya rooms, recreations of archaeological scenes and more. Some highlights to check out include the Aztec Calender, recreation of Pakal’s tomb in the Maya exhibit room and the Jade mask of the Zapotec Bat God in the Oaxaca exhibit room.
