The Coyolxauhqui monolith discovery in 1978, enabled the archaeologists to find the exact place where the pyramid stood, since the Huitzilopochtli myth tells that he threw his sister down from Coatepec mountain.  The archaeological excavations of the Coyolxauhqui monolith that took place between 1978 and 1982 on the site of what was once the Main Temple of Mexica peoples shows .  The museum recreates the duality of life and death, water and war, agriculture and tribute, symbols of Tlaloc and Huitzilopachtil, deities to whom the Main Temple of Tenochititlan was dedicated.  The collection shows the political, military and aesthetic relevance of the city that dominated Mesoamerica before the Spaniards arrived.
