“Wonderful, easy, safe excursion, Take Pasos-they don't take US $”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

Stunning building and museum set in amazing gardens with a huge surprise - a pyramid right and temple. Very inexpensive, takes around an hour and the kids loved the lizards running around. No American in the store.

“Not what I expected”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

Most of the statues are piled right next to one another so it is difficult to see them. It really wasn't all that exciting.

“Small but full of history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

It is a small museum, but really nice place to get more info about ruins in the area and more history about the Mayans. It is a cheap ticket entrance and walk distance from our hotel. We really enjoy the afternoon in the museum. It is not a have to do on your vacations, but a nice place to go.

“Great museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

This is a great little museum to check out while you're in Cancun. It starts with a walk through some well-excavated and well-maintained Mayan ruins that meander under and next to the museum. Then you hop in an elevator or climb the ramp to access the main museum floor high above the ruins. It's clean, new, well designed, extremely well air conditioned (SO nice after walking through the ruins) and has a great collection of artifacts. The museum store also has some really well-priced, high-quality pottery and sculptures for sale.
