Teotihuacán: Site Museum

Recommended
The large model in the Teotihuacán Site Museum gives you an idea of the size of the city, capital of the largest Pre-Columbian empire, whose limits extended far beyond the current site. Things to be seen include the complex earthenware censers inlaid with added elements (shells, obsidian, small sculptures) and a series of skeletons with bound hands, some of them wearing strange jewellery, which is a recent discovery (1986). Were there human sacrifices in Teotihuacán?
