Museo de Murales Teotihuacanos, Beatriz de la Fuente
The monuments at Teotihuacan were once decorated with colourful murals. Samples of these are to be found in this museum, together with an explanation of the techniques used and other related objects. There is also a provisional explanation of the script.
About the museum

Inaugurated in 2001 and refurbished in 2006, this museum shows visitors another aspect of the ancient city of Teotihuacan, were every building was once decorated with many different kinds of painting. 

This space contains a large number of mural fragments, as well as models and detailed information about the work involved in creating a mural. The range of exhibits—organized by nine themes spread across 13 different galleries—also includes a vast collection of archeological artefacts, notably stone carvings, obsidian pieces and pottery. 

In addition to the various examples of Teotihuacan artwork—particularly the architecture, sculpture and painting—visitors to this museum will also learn more about this culture’s worldview. In the specific case of muralism, an explanation is provided for the technique, the writing method (still not deciphered in its entirety) and chronology, based on the technical and artistic developments, as well as the connection with ideology and religion according to research into these artworks that date back at least 1,500 years.
