Museo de Anthropologia

We had an excellent visit to the anthropology  museum with our friend the Architect. Living and working in the southern part of the city, we haven't explored many of the highlights of the city, especially in the center.

The building is quite spectacular- a long rectangle around a central courtyard with an amazing "umbrella" fountain - which was even more impressive at night. I have no idea how that giant roof is supported by the single pillar - but it looks incredible.

 TD was of course fascinated with skulls & snakes.
