The Museo del Mundo Maya (Museum of the Mayan World) is very new, well-done with lots of English signs. I somehow was not aware of this museum from my pre-vacation research and learned of it in the big tourist newspaper while in Merida. Note that...More

Such a great experience. Really enjoyed the interactive displays and the movies that they had even though they were in Spanish. It gives you a great idea of how the Mayan people lived pre and post colonial.

The museum was very modern and organised. Most information is in Mayan, Spanish and English languages which was a pleasant surprise. I was there for over 2 hrs. For non-nationals the entry was $150 pesos. There was a tour being conducted when I arrived but...More
