Preserving Mexico's Diverse Cultural Heritages

Museo Nacional de Antropología

The Museo Nacional de Antropología (MNA) — the largest and most-visited museum in the country — was established in 1964 to serve as a space to study the rich indigenous history of Mexico. Designed by Mexican architect Pedro Ramirez Vazquez, the museum's iconic, modern building surrounds a striking courtyard that is covered by what is known as the concrete umbrella. The collection preserves the archeological history of Mexico's myriad cultural groups throughout history and pays homage to the country's indigenous cultures. Archeological items date back to 1790, and a vast collection of ethnographic objects illuminate the worldviews and daily lives of Mexico's indigenous communities. The MNA also produces insightful publications and research, and it offers educational programming centered on preserving the historical archive and conserving heritage.
