  • The day we visited it was a Saturday so it was very crowded. We were able to see 90% of the exhibits. It was humid and hot inside the buildings because of the amount of people. The views from the top of Chapultepec Palace overlooking CDMX are amazing. Plan to spend a lot of time here. We visited on a Saturday day and the place was very crowded. There was humidity and heat in the showrooms because of the large number of people there were. The view from the Castle to the CDMX is spectacular. Make plans to spend several hours there. This place can't be appreciated if you're in a hurry. There is an elevator for people with walking limitations. I highly recommend it.

  • A nice spacious park to walk around, check out some vendors, and relax. I wouldn't walk around here alone at night as a woman, and would recommend having a buddy if you go out night, but during the day you should be fine. The pond area made me think a bit of Central Park in NYC.
  • Wonderful place. Extensive open green urban park. Well actually the city has grown around it throughout time. But it was extremely pleasing to see such a great big green natural area in a great metropolis. Make sure that you have lost of time (1 day) if you really want to explore it.
