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.
