In the context of the 80th anniversary of the National Institute of Anthropology and History, Templo Mayor has an immediate antecedent: the old Ethnographic Museum. This emblematic precinct is located in the corner of the streets: Guatemala and Seminario, it was a space where the indigenous past and present converged, materialized in representations of regional dances and clothes, archaeological remains discovered by Manuel Gamio in 1914 and a model of Templo Mayor.

The exhibition has some of the original wax sculptures that were in the museum, made by Carmen Carrillo de Antúnez, archaeological pieces, documents, and images with which the audience can know more about the mission of preservation and promotion this museum had, a worthy antecedent of the current Templo Mayor Museum.

In order to celebrate the Institute’s anniversary, this exhibition gives account of the continuous work in the study, recording, preservation, and promotion of our past, in the importance of this space for the history of archaeology of our country and its commitment in the preservation of the indigenous memory.
