Archaeological Sites

Mexico City's archaeological sites are many, and all richly rewarding. They're the pride of the city, and a big part of the reason people visit the city from around the world.

Few other cities can boast a history so long, and so little understood. Yet, modern, dynamic, innovative Mexico City has a deep affinity for reclaiming and truly understanding it's past.

You can visit museums that surround major archaeological excavations, or smaller discoveries only now turning out learning, new knowledge, and better understanding. In every case we're glimpsing important and influential cultures, many of them still quite present among us. And learning has never been more vital.

In addition to the pages below, we've dedicated a good number of pages to better exploring the names, figures, peoples, and traditions which have come to make up today's Mexico City. It's all based on yesterday's Mexico City and the Archaeological Sites you'll discover in these pages are many, and endlessly fascinating.
