Our Spanish Immersion’s private tour of the Museum of Anthropology

The experience of learning Spanish at our Mexico City Immersion comes wrapped up in a gorgeous box full of exclusive events and activities. Because as much as we believe in the Fluenz methodology and its success, we’re also firm on the idea that you have to immerse yourself in the culture, its history, in order to really absorb the language. 

One of our most special outings is a private night-time visit to the National Museum of Anthropology. The feeling of having one of the most important archaeological and ethnographic collections in the country all to yourself, is thrilling to say the least. Walking around its 23 exhibit halls with on one else around but your Immersion colleagues and a guide is something to remember. 

Here are a few fun facts to spur your curiosity:

In the inner courtyard stands an inverted fountain named “El Paraguas” (The Umbrella). It represents the four cardinal points and it has an iconic bronze column at its center carved by the  Chávez Morado brothers.

Designed by Pedro Ramírez Vázquez, Jorge Campuzano and Rafael Mijares Alcérreca, the museum features 23 permanent exhibit halls and covers an area of 857,890 square feet (almost 20 acres!)

The museum is now part of the Google Art Project. This is relevant now more than ever because you can take a explore its vast collection through a 360° virtual tour.

This is the most visited attraction in Mexico (around 2 millions visitors a year) , after the archeological sites of Teotihuacán and Chichen Itzá.
