|About these ratings|
The Central University City Campus of the National University of Mexico includes 40 academic institutions, the Mexican Olympic stadium, a Mexican cultural center, a nature preserve and the city's Central Library. Like many of the city's other landmarks, the campus was designed by some of Mexico's most famous architects. The entire campus is now designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The city's famous muralists have also made their mark on the campus, and travelers recommend you check out the work of famous painter David Alfaro Siqueiros at the Rectorate Tower or the work of Juan O'Gorman at the Central Library. The campus also holds the University Museum of Contemporary Art, an excellent spot for viewing Mexico's more recent cultural offerings.
Travelers on TripAdvisor say that the campus is a great place to take a stroll and take photographs, but be sure to bring your sneakers since the expansive campus requires a lot of walking.
