  • To get to the museum of the snail you must take the route to the Museum of Chapultepec the first entry is to store bags and meals, have lockers for rent 20 MXN ($1 USD), allow you to stay with any drink until you get to the museum, then you start to climb the Hill, it's 400 meters uphill. For this museum so it is better to climb it slowly and in a good step, on The right you find The HISTORY GALLERY or known as the Museum of Caracól, because the tour inside is in the form of spiral sea snail , the whole story is depicted in miniature figures not only in paintings, very nice, but a bit boring) I RECOMMEND it, but go with good footwear and fresh clothes.

  • Interesting, but not great for a non Spanish speaking visitor. It was neat seeing the constitution and the room it was in was beautiful. $75 pesos on the Sunday I was there. Free bag check.
  • Great museum. I absolutely enjoyed this place. Take your time, look at everything. Don't miss down stairs. The entrance to xibalba is behind the red tall statue. Just an wonderful little museum.
