in detail

The Tlatelolco University Cultural Center is a project of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), which was inaugurated on October 22, 2007 and since then has built a community around culture and art.

The Tlatelolco Museum comprises two rooms dedicated to archaeological site that is located next to the building. Here more than 270 archaeological artifacts found at the site, which became the most important commercial center of Central America, are displayed.

The two rooms of the museum site make it possible to understand the real importance of Tlatelolco in the pre-Hispanic era. Among its most notable exhibits are the Stavenhagen and 68 Memorial. It is a cultural meeting point for young and old and the Museum also organizes activities for getting to know the neighborhood or just learning something fun. It has workshops from different disciplines aimed at children, for example “Let’s play with the piano” to teach kids simple melodies through games that alternate the hands. There are a lot of option for kids to have fun and learn in an environment full of art and culture.

It was thanks to the Memorial that the government of the Distrito Federal gave space to UNAM in 2005, for the construction and memory of the generation that prevailed against a tight, authoritarian government with cultural and peaceful actions.
