History:

The Institute was created by mandate of the president Lázaro Cárdenas (United Mexican States) in 1939, in an effort to set up an institution devoted to the preservation, safeguard and dissemination of Mexican archaeological, anthropological and historical heritage. This organism of the federal government is responsible for the research, preservation and dissemination of Mexican prehistorical, archaeological, anthropological, historical and paleontological heritage. Nowadays, the performance of the Institute's functions relies upon a Technical Secretariat, responsible for the oversight of the substantial work, whose duties are carried out by seven national coordination centers and 31 regional centers scattered across the states of the Republic. Such organism bears responsibility for more than 110, 000 historical monuments, built between the 16th and the 19th centuries, and 29, 000 archaeological sites registered in the country. Although there is an estimate of 200, 000 places with archaeological remains, only 181 are open to the public.
