Was fortunate enough to explore this hidden treasure with a beautiful native Mexican women. What a great break from beaches and all inclusive partying. Grounds and exhibitions were well tended and amazingly quiet for a busy Cancun Sunday afternoon, nationals receive free admission on Sundays and as a guest so did I. Would highly recommend this especially for those wanting... More

Design and presentation. Does it have a Café? We didn't notice. Some days it's free for local residents which is very fair: tourists can afford to help support this museum.

This new Mexican museum in Cancun is built on "stilts" above the ruins of a Mayan "business center" that was later a Hacienda and how has been cleaned up so the public can see it. It is amazing that there are so many ruins of pyramids and small cities that nobody really knows what their purpose was or who lived... More

Great museum. Loved the nature walk with foundation ruins and iguanas. Nice follow up on Maya culture after Chichen Itza tour.

To see and understand more of Mexico was wonderful. To see artifacts of that age is fascinating. I highly recommend a visit.

This museum was highly hyped for it lovely collection of jade and for the ruins you can wander around in. Well the jade and most of the cool exhibits were in loan to a museum in France, and the archaeological area was closed. Things we found out about after we paid to go in. So the stones and pottery were... More

I saw this museum from the R1 bus and on a whim asked the driver to stop. I'm glad I did. Admission was less than USD $5 (they accept only MX money so bring pesos). The ruins stretch along a well-maintained winding, flat, shaded path that runs for maybe a couple of hundred yards or so. The forest debris is... More

The facility is modern, clean, climate-controlled and beautiful, and houses countless treasures from the storied past of the city of Cancun and its Maya heritage. The outdoor area features authentic ruins along an easily accessible path, much of which is shaded. Admission is less than $10, and being able to access all this history right in the middle of the...

Two story site that mixes outside life pieces with indoor exhibits. The second floor has the exhibits which has original pottery, tools and religious art pieces. You can see the work of the Mayan artists. There are some beautiful pieces here so take your tine to feel and understand them in context of their time and place. The first floor... More
