Museum Day at Bosque de Chapultepec
Bosque de Chapultepec is a 1700 acre park that contains nine museums, a castle, amusement parks, winding paths, commemorative sculptures, lakes and fountains. It’s considered the first and most important of Mexico City’s “lungs”, with trees that replenish oxygen to the Valley of Mexico.
The weather turned cooler and cloudy today so I thought it would be a great day to go to three of the museums in the park. I walked almost 2 miles to Museo de Arte Moderno. I really enjoyed exploring this museum.
Next I walked 5 minutes to the Museo Tamayo Arte Contemporaneo. Luckily it was free for seniors, since there wasn’t that much to see and it was just okay.
The Museo Nacional de Antropologia was another 5-minute walk. This place is amazing, it’s on par with the museums in Washington D.C. and it’s only $5.
After walking my legs off, I stopped at a restaurant for a late lunch/ early dinner. All together I walked over 7 mi. There’s still more for me to see at the Bosque de Chapultepec.
