Perched on the rugged terrain of Morelos, Mexico, the Site Museum Xochicalco presents a profound narrative of the archaeological site it complements, Xochicalco. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is considered one of the most important pre-Columbian archaeological sites in the country. The museum is thoughtfully designed to provide context to the ruins, featuring artifacts, models, and interactive displays that illuminate the daily lives, rituals, and architectural prowess of the site's ancient inhabitants. Xochicalco thrived as a fortified settlement and a significant center of commerce, culture, and astronomy from the 7th to 10th centuries.
