Synopsis

This museum opened in 1963, in a building constructed to house it. Teotihuacan culture had great influence in Mesoamerica, and the reasons why this city was abandoned are not precise. The “Place Where Men Become Gods” represents the Classic period of arts: architecture, sculpture and mural painting. The social organization, as well as the importance of religion and commerce in the daily life, are reconstructed in this Museum, based on archaeological findings.
