The Museo Maya is a brand new museum. It contains a nice variety of Maya artifacts. The museum is nicely laid out, well lit and the items are labeled in Spanish and English. It is well worth 1-2 hours of visiting.

We like the museum, it was very informative, interesting. The only problem some exhibits did not have English description, though it encouraged us to start learning Spanish :-)

Very nice gardens and archeological site, nice building but would have expected more exhibits given the many archeological sites in the region. Not so friendly staff and a questionable way of storing your belongings before entering.

We have gone by this many times on our visits to Cancun. We had 11 members of our family, so we decided to go. We spent several hours both inside and outside, so interesting. The children enjoyed seeing the exhibits inside, and the ruins outside were great. In expensive and fun, worth a visit.

What a wonderful addition to Cancun. We really learned a lot about the Mayan culture and enjoyed walking around the ruins.

The museum is quite small and don't have many chambers. But really amazing is the garden of the museum. Is't the jungle in the middle of Cancun. Mayan ruins in a most amazing decor. Expect to see a lot of iguanas.

We had driven by numerous times but finally took the time to stop and check it out. A real gem with amazing artifacts and info and a trail that takes you to some ruins that were right in Cancun in the hotel zone. A good value and time well spent.

65 pesos per person. Spent several hours in exhibit and on grounds. New since 2012. Great overview of thousands of years of history, mostly in Spanish, but much in English. Some nice videos as well. Walking grounds and seeing ruins in jungle makes you forget that you are between hotels and Kukulkan blvd. Right at Captains Cove and Royal Carribean.... More

I am a full-time resident of Cancun and have been to this beautiful museum several times. The artifacts and cultural representations are nicely displayed with notes and information displayed in Spanish, English, and Mayan languages. The museum sits in the hotel zone, in the midst of an actual Maya ruin that is not visible from the road. This museum offers... More

Having stayed within the hotel zone for the last two weeks I have found the majority of excursions involve at least an hours trip south from Cancun towards Playa del Carmen. Tulum was very interesting but very busy. Should you want a bit of Mayan medieval culture to yourself then this fits the bill perfectly. There is a very well... More
