The museum is a little bit of heaven in a touristy area. The rooms are situated on the upper level. There are English translations on the wall to help you understand what was occurring when and where. Don't miss the lower level archeological walk through pleasant gardens and digs.

Nice surprise in touristy Cancun! Informative displays and architecture. Cool relief from the heat inside - but also a wonderful walkway outdoors past Mayan ruins, lined with beautiful mangrove trees providing nice shade

We spent 90 minutes at this museum and had a wonderful walking tour. Having been to Chichen Itza on earlier visits to Cancun, we didn't want to spend the entire day to visit Mayan ruins again (bus, tour, bus back). This was on a much smaller scale, but really gave convenient insight and refreshed our memories of how advanced the... More

At only £3 per person entry, this museum represents good value for money. The air conditioning was just right and the building itself was modern and well laid out. There were some excellent exhibits but not all the explanations were in English.

My husband took me to this museum. He liked the inside with numerous Mayan finds which were nicely displayed, I enjoyed the ruins/walk outside in back. Nice trails and observation points, with interesting history.

This is a very interesting museum. Part was in English and the rest was in Spanish. The artifacts were very well preserved. They need to expand their parking area.

This museum and adjoining archeologic site is well worth a visit. Right off the main road, it is amazingly quiet and peaceful.

The museum was in front of our hotel, so I went and checked it out one afternoon. It takes about and hour or so to view the inside artifacts and about half in hour to walk around the outside. If you do not like walking then this is not for you. Not all artifacts have english information beside them which... More

This is a great little museum. The grounds are peaceful as you walk along the trail to see the ruins, and the artifacts inside the museum itself are interesting. Most, but not all, of the signage is in English, which was helpful and informative.
