Templo Mayor Museum



REVIEW

Inaugurated on October 12, 1987, it holds thousand of archeological pieces found since 1978 to nowadays in a seven block radius in Mexico’s City Downtown. The museum was built by the architect Pedro Ramírez Vázquez and is located in what used to be the most important ceremonial center for the Mexicas.

It has eight rooms dedicated mostly to Tláloc, God of Water, and Huitzilopochtli, God of War. The main piece of the museum is a stone representation of Coyolxauhqui, Goddess of the Moon, beheaded and dismembered by his brother Huitzilopochtli.

The collection tells the evolution of the Aztecs, since the pilgrimage of the Mexicas and their settlement in the Lake of Texcoco to the arrival of the Spanish conquerors and the fusion of both cultures.
