Big (Olmec) Heads

The Anthropology Museum in Xalapa (about 5 hrs by bus from Mexico City) has an excellent collection of big, stone, Olmec heads.  They’re exhibited in a series of galleries connected off of a single, long, well-lit hall.  There’s plenty of space in the museum, too, to allow visitors to walk around and see the pieces, Olmec and others, from every angle.
