    In Spanish or English. "Inaugurated on October 12, 1987, this site museum preserves, exhibits and publicizes information on archaeological materials excavated over the course of several seasons of work conducted by the Templo Mayor Project, from 1978 to the present. The museum has eight halls exhibiting thousands of objects, many of them from the more than 110 offerings uncovered in the Archaeological Zone, as well as sculptures, reliefs and other elements found in this area. Here, the Templo Mayor of the Mexica is reproduced symbolically and in the form of museum displays. To reflect the distribution of their shrines at the Great Temple, the halls in the south wing are dedicated to Huitzilopochtli, god of war, related to the Sun, and those in the north wing to Tlaloc, god of rain."
