in detail

San Andrés Mixquic is one of the villages that survives to the megacity of Mexico City. It is famous for hosting one of the greatest parties of the year on the 1st and 2nd of November: Day of the Dead. The foundation of the town was in 1168; it was an island rounded by Chalco lake and had a big production of chinampas.

The museum takes up and glamourises the festivities of the town which goes along with sowing cycle and religion. It consists of a room where one Chac Mool, vestiges of a Tetlachtli, clay seals and stone seals, one cylindrical snake, one tzompantli, one knotted yellow snake, another one called “culebra de cinto”, a deep calendar used as a baptismal pile and other objects may be found.
