Templo Mayor Museum
General view of the Templo Mayor Museum with the archaeological zone. The Museum is set in the heart of downtown Mexico City in the area known as the Historical Center. It was built by architect Pedro Ramírez Vázquez, who envisioned a discrete structure that would not compete with the colonial surroundings. The Museum has four floors, three of them for permanent exhibitions and one of them with offices for the director, museum administration and research staff, among other functions. Other departments are located in the basement, where there is also an auditorium with a capacity for 139 people.
