Easy Podcast: El robo del siglo al Museo de Antropología

The National Museum of Anthropology is the largest and most visited museum in Mexico. Located in the area within Chapultepec Park in Mexico City, the museum holds relevant archaeological and anthropological artifacts from Mexico’s pre-Columbian heritage, such as the Stone of the Sun (or the Aztec calendar stone) and many pieces from the Olmec, Mayan and Aztec cultures.

On Christmas Eve, 1985, two men broke into the museum and committed “el robo del siglo” (theft of the century).
