The National Anthropology Museum (MNA) is one of the most important museum complexes in Mexico and Latin America. It was designed to house and exhibit the archaeological legacy of the Mesoamerican peoples, as well as to showcase the country's current ethnic diversity. The current MNA building was constructed between 1963 and 1964 in the Bosque de Chapultepec, commissioned by president Adolfo López Mateos, who inaugurated it on September 17, 1964. The MNA building has 23 permanent exhibit rooms, 1 temporary exhibit hall and two auditoriums. It also houses the holdings of the National Anthropology Library.
