Museo Nacional de Antropología
The Museo Nacional de Antropología (1963) designed by Pedro Ramirez Vasques is the centerpiece of the Chapultepec museum district. The gallery spaces are located in low rise late-modernist marble buildings around a large internal courtyard which is covered by a large canopy supported by a single carved bronze bronze column.
The building is surrounded by gardens which create a valuable buffer between the gallery spaces and Mexico City and are visible through large windows which let natural light into the gallery spaces. This important Mexican museum contains exhibitions that describes the history of Mexico and contains many important artifacts.
