University of Mexico in Mexico CityIs it worth visiting? Do they have a bookstore where I could buy a tank top with University of Mexico printed on it?

1Do you mean UNAM (Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico)? If so, surely you could find something around the campus, as it's enormous (and also pretty cool). The shirt's not going to say "Universidad de Mexico" or "University of Mexico" on it, though.

5One place you can buy clothing with UNAM logos is at the entrance to the university closest to the Universidad metro station. There are a number of booths there with vendors selling a variety of UNAM clothing.
Whether the university is worth visiting depends on what interests you. The main points of interest are considered to be the murals on the outside of the library and the museum (#4 above). Next, the soccer stadium and the botanical garden.
If you visit the Faculty of Science (I don’t think you’d find this in any tourist guide), some points of interest are the Prometheus fountain, and the “local garden’’ growing vegetables and herbs on the cafeteria roof, the same which are cooked and served (at student-friendly prices) below inside the cafeteria.

6Just a short walk on Insurgentes you can visit the circular pyramids that predate Teotihuacan
Also the 1968 Summer Olympics stadium
