No matter in which state you find yourself, or which of all the towns of Mexico you choose to visit: every corner of the country is brimming with culture.
The larger cities boast museums of world standing – but almost all towns include a museum that relates the history of the area.
The entire country is also full of cultural venues, galleries, exhibition spaces and house-museums where you can breathe the history of Mexico.
A great starting point for getting to know the history of the country is in Mexico City. Here, you can stroll around the various sections of the Bosque de Chapultepec park and visit one of its many museums.
The National Museum of Anthropology receives one of the largest number of visitors anywhere in the world and in its enormous halls you can discover the pre-Hispanic past of the country.
Walking along the Paseo de la Reforma avenue that crosses through the park, you can enjoy the photography exhibitions that are regularly presented on the railings of the Zoo and Botanic Garden, before entering the Museum of Modern Art, or perhaps the National History Museum, located in the palace where Emperor Maximilian and his wife Carlota once lived, with a spectacular view over the city.
But it’s not all history here: there are spaces dedicated to the sciences at the Universum museum, and to children and play at the wonderful El Papalote children’s museum.
Outside of the capital, cities like Monterrey, Guadalajara, Guanajuato, Querétaro, Cuernavaca, Aguascalientes, Tuxtla Gutiérrez and more are all home to major museums that display everything from mummies to toys or materials such as glass, and galleries where you can discover Mexican art both traditional and contemporary, some of which have earned worldwide recognition.
