As the nation’s capital and its largest city, it’s no surprise that Mexico City is a hotspot for Mexican culture, art and history. One of the best ways to appreciate the rich cultural offerings of this exciting metropolis is to visit some of its amazing museums.

During my most recent trip to Mexico City, I visited several of the top cultural institutions, including two of the newest art museums in Mexico City, and one of the most famed anthropology museums in the world. These photos show some of my favorite visuals from these attractions (and if you’d like to see more from some of the most celebrated Mexican artists, check out the photos from my visit to the Casa Azul, the home of Frida Kahlo, and the Casa Estudio Diego Rivera – Frida Kahlo).

In this photo set, you’ll see four must-see museums in Mexico City:
