Chapultepec Castle
At Chapultepec Park, the largest city park in the world. Climb to the top of Chapultepec Hill and reach Chapultepec Castle (Castillo de Chapultepec). You'll be able to explore the 12 halls of the 18th-century castle and enjoy the rooms and exhibits.

During your 2-hour tour, learn about Chapultepec’s origins as a retreat for Aztec rulers before it was partially destroyed and rebuilt into the home of Emperor Maximilian of Habsburg. It then served as the residence for Mexico’s presidents before most of the castle was converted into the National History Museum. The exhibits trace the country’s history, from the pre-Columbian era through Spanish colonialism, to Mexico’s revolution and its independence.

Admire the state carriages of Benito Juárez and Emperor Maximilian, and learn the stories behind the sculptures and busts of historical figures. See the sword wielded by independence fighter José María Morelos and gaze at murals of battles painted by famous artists.

Great day in the heart of Mexico City

Took this tour on December 29th. Letty was our fantastic tour guide. We started with the Museum of Anthropology and though it was sometimes hard to hear because of the crowd, I learned so much about the history of the indigenous peoples of Mexico. After a nice lunch at the park, we went up to tour Chapultepec Castle. I was fascinated by looking at rooms from the outside! The views of Mexico City were incredible and the rooftop garden was beautiful. On the whole, a great day. Highly recommend.

Loved seeing some of the highlights of the museum and learning about the history of the Aztecs and Mayans. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, but sometimes went into too much detail and but the time we reached the castle me and my family felt overloaded and tired.
