The displays on the inside are informative but need to be updated. The museum has an 80s or 90s feeling to it. The museum is clean and safe but just needs to be brought up to our current times. The outside portion of the museum...More

This museum provides a comprehensive, but approachable overview of the Mayan culture with many beautiful artifacts from various time periods. The grounds also include a small Mayan ruin. We visited this museum before touring Tulum and Chichen Itza and found it very helpful in understanding...More

Do they have English guides? Or can they connect us with a knowledgeable local guide who could lead us? We went on our own before and felt we missed a lot.

Sorry, we do not know if there are guides or not. We do recall that English language signage has improved since the first year.
Hola, 1) If I tell the bus driver we are going to Museo Maya will he tell us when we are there? 2) What time do you open tomorrow morning? 3) How much, in pesos, is the entrance fee? Gracias

Bus drivers will nod "Yes" even if they don't speak English. It is part of being nice in Quintana Roo. Ask to get off at the Captains Cove, or Museo Maya de Cancun.
Is there any parking nearby?

Yes, but if you stay in the hotel zone you can take a bus for less than $1.00 - extremely easy.
