Start off your visit on the 14th (Sat): let little ones run wild at Parque Espana, steep yourself in history at Chapultepec Castle, see the interesting displays at National Museum of Anthropology (Museo Nacional de Antropologia), then delve into the distant past at Templo Mayor Museum, and finally delve into the distant past at Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral Metropolitana). Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: examine the collection at Frida Kahlo Museum, get a sense of history and politics at National Palace (Palacio Nacional), then explore the world behind art at Palacio de Bellas Artes, and finally get to know the fascinating history of Zocalo.
