Tepexpan Museum - Museum - Mexico

A few years after the discovery of the “oldest human remains” in America near Tepexpan in 1947, this museum was enthusiastically erected to show off Mexico’s own paleontological marvel. Unfortunately the skeleton has since been revealed to be nowhere near as old as the 12,000 years originally claimed; the truer figure is closer to 2,000. The museum's bones, obsidian chips and old blankets aren’t worth making a specific trip for but the museum and pretty village of Tepexpan itself are a worthwhile diversion if you have time after the pyramids.
