All reviews hotel zone archaeological site on display english translation small pyramid san miguelito interesting artifacts royal caribbean nice walk rainy day couple of hours el rey entrance fee pesos per person quintana roo few hours air conditioned
The museum is in good condition and there are very nice historic items for display. The are worlds between the Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City and this one here. Its worth a visit but not a must.
The building itself is an interesting design with a curved ramp entrance. The grounds had iguanas and Mayan ruins through shaded walkways and mangroves. The museum had ceramics, carved stones, jade, and other finds. There was also a photography exhibit.
We visited this lovely museum on our last day and thoroughly recommend it. The bus ride was 12 pesos each (50p) from our hotel and the entrance fee was 75 pesos (£3.25)
The archealogical site was very interesting along with a good description of buildings...More
We visited the Museo de Maya on the last day of our trip, and loved the exhibits. The artifacts from Tulum and other local ruins were really interesting. We also learned a lot from the exhibit on the Caste War. The cost is very low...More
Entrance is at a low cost but the collection is impressive, as is the walk through mangrove forest (it's dry thankfully) to the ruins adjacent. Building is air conditioned with wifi and photography is permitted if you turn the flash off. Fascinating collection of Mayan...More
The Maya museum is a fine way to get an introduction to Mayan history and culture. The many artifacts and dioramas make it real, and complement the various tour options to the ancient Mayan cities on the Yucatán peninsula. Takes 1-3 hours to appreciate, depending...More
This is a place that every person who is visiting this area should go and see. It is educational yet fun, beautiful and interesting. We enjoyed very much outside part of the museum which is situated on the ancient grounds with well preserved ruins. Really...More
We love the beaches in Cancun, but there isn't much culture...so we really enjoyed this site. The archaeological site is very interesting, totally walkable and nicely documented. I did wish the signs had drawings of the buildings for a better visual beyond the text; it...More

We purchased tickets on site, just inside the entrance area in front of the gift shop. I do not remember the price of the tickets but it was not unreasonable. Have a good time and take good walking shoes.
It should be about a 15 minute drive. Note that you'll need to go past and make a u-turn at one of their turn-around spots when you go there. I do not think they have a snack bar, however the museum is small and you will be... More
It should be about a 15 minute drive. Note that you'll need to go past and make a u-turn at one of their turn-around spots when you go there. I do not think they have a snack bar, however the museum is small and you will be able to take it in within a couple of hours and then resort to one of the other food options along the hotel zone.
