Our trip to Museo de Antropologia E Historia was a visit to true downtown Mexico with its commercial street businesses, large American named hotels, with families, the heat, and hustling and bustling through big city
At the center of the museum is la paraguas. It is a massive centerpiece that acts as an umbrella during the heavy rain. A waterfall in the center of the complex!
This museum is the largest museum in Mexico and its main attraction displays ancient civilization of the Mayans and Aztecs. Filled with rich history only discovered relatively recently!
The highlight of the weekend was viewing (in awe and wonder) a $2.4 million project that was put together at the center of downtown Mexico. It was a life sized replica of the Sistine Chapel!! A gem of Rome is in Mexico through the summer months. It was a great experience!! Unfortunately, no pictures were allowed, but that’s ok as I was able to really live the moment!
That’s all for now. This Saturday, we go to the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe. For now, here’s a gem of a piece with Fr. Mike Schmitz on praying in the state of mortal sin:
