Most go to the Museum of Anthropology to learn about the archaeological artifacts it houses. But the institution is also worth visiting to admire its fantastic murals, which are often much less appreciated by visitors.
The museum is meant to be a celebration of Mexican heritage. It’s filled with interesting artistic and architectural details that complement the various exhibits. Of all this complementary work, the most peculiar are the nearly 105 murals of the museum (of which only 17 are not on display).
