The public, in a few days, will have an opportunity 

to realize a century of exploration in the archaeological zone of Teotihuacan,

State of Mexico. This will be accomplished by means of the exhibition

of 425 discovered pieces from this pre-hispanic city, which in its time 

(150A.C.–650 D.C.), was the sixth largest metropolis in the world.  



The sample of Teotihuacan, City of the Gods, will cover an area

of nearly 3,500 square meters and will remain on display until 

August of 2009. This is a small part of an extensive itinerary 

taking it all in all to different regions of Europe: 

The Museum Quai Branly, Paris, France; the Rietberg Museum, Zurich, 

Switzerland; and The Martin Gropius Bau, Berlin, Germany. 

Additionally, it will travel through Spain, Italy, Denmark and Sweden, 

approaching 2011 and 2012. The pieces that compose this great 

exposition are mostly from The National Museum 

of Anthropology (303) and the archaeological zone Museum where

Teotihuacan once stood.  

 

The exposition complements effective multimedia around the 

development of this “megaurbe”. It was an extensive 

investigation that took place from the middle of the 17th century, with

Mr. Carlos of Sigüenza and Gongora, until the 21st century, 

in charge of specialists termed INAH.
