in detail

The precinct shelters a bit more than 900 exhibited pieces in four different rooms, composed by mannequins dressed up with Mexican cloths, photografies, posters and monograms of prehispanic time in México.

The peculiarity of this museum is that the exhibited pieces belong to Octavio Romero Arzate’s collection. Octavio collected them throughout the years. Romero elaborated museography by hand and he even lived in the place.

A model of Tenochtitlán city may be found, as well as prehispanic clay pieces, pots, obsidian knives, funeral urns, plates, flutes, obsidian figures, inceseburners, ceremonial masks, among others.

Its name is due to the finding of the remains of Mexican poet prince Tlaltecatzin, which are now in Archaeological National Museum.
