The station logo shows the Mexican Coat of Arms, which is also the Presidential Seal. Artwork on the walls of the station reflects the evolution of the central square over time. Three large display cases contain miniature models showing the site during three periods in history starting from the Aztec pyramids until the present day. Buildings surrounding the square include the Metropolitan Cathedral, Palacio Nacional, where the President's office is located, and the Mexico City Town Hall.
Zócalo station has an information desk and a cultural display. It connects with Metro Pino Suárez station at the south side through a long underground passage, called Pasaje Zócalo–Pino Suárez. This corridor is filled mostly with bookstores, and also has a free mini-cinema. The two underground entrances leading to the station are not signposted as it is usually the case with all the other stations in the network.
