Established in an old mansion, this museum has exhibitions documenting the history of Mexico City, the country’s capital, exploring every era from pre-Columbian Mayan history when humans first made their way into the valley in 8,000 B.C., to the conquest of Hernan Cortes, to the official founding of the city and all the way up until modern times. The Museo de Cera de la Ciudad de Mexico is nothing if not a thorough chronicle of the history and culture of Mexico City and the surrounding area.
The cultural lineage of Mexican culture is amongst the histories most steeped in heroism and exciting stories. Besides being great for history buffs, the adventurous air of Mexican history means that this museum can also turn young people on to a passion for historic studies and cultural heritage, so the Museo de Cera de la Ciudad de Mexico, and other museums like it, shouldn't be ruled out as a family vacation destination.
