“Mayan Museum”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

It is very good. Traces history of Mayan people and very interesting. The history is both English and Spanish. Even the videos were in English or had English subtitles. But it would have been better if the individual artifacts would had their descriptions in English in addition to the Spanish.

“Awesome”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

A new and innovative addition to Cancun. The Museo is a condensed historical lesson for the educated and uneducated. Learning the history of the Mayan culture adds an understanding to your vacation experience. You no longer look around and wonder but come to understand all about the ethic and qualities of a people who have existed long before our own histories began. What a wonderful experience this was for me and the walk through the Jungle was so unique. Bring comfortable shoes and lots of water and plan on spending the whole afternoon or morning - early afternoon there.

“Maya Museum”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

If you're into history, check out this museum. Enjoyed looking at artifacts I had only read about in National Geographic magazines in the past. Good feeling to see items 1,000 of years old, in awe at times. Bring your camera !
Cannot pay with $US, only pesos are accepted (57 pesos to be exact).
