Museo del Templo Mayor Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
Among the 8,000 or so objects found on the site, the flint and obsidian sacrificial knives, some of them with stone eyes, send shivers down your spine. The famous basalt Coyolxauhqui Disk represents the goddess of the Moon in a very human way. The many other treasures in the Museo del Templo Mayor, such as masks, jewellery, funerary urns and sculptures, including the majestic Eagle Warriors, make it a fascinating place. And thanks to the large model of the city and various reconstructions, you'll soon be dreaming about Tenochtitlán.
