This is a small museum which gives a little insight into the Mayans. The main information in the museum is in english but the artifacts are not. I was lucky enough to have someone to translate for me but I think I would have lost interest quickly if I did not have that translation. There are some amazing artifacts and also mayan ruins to walk around.

This is a unique place in Cancun. The museum in in front of the Royal Mayan resort. the entrance fee was about 57 pesos, or about 4-5 dollars. The museum is divided into two parts the first level you can walk through the grounds and see ruins, on the second level you will find artifacts and exhibits. Small but great.

LOVED the two hours we spent at this realitively new Mayan Museum. Features a great video of how the Mayans lived and their way of life. I have visited Tulum and this was a great treat. Make sure you have plenty of Pesos for any purchases inthe gift shop as well as for entering the museum. I missed out on a nice purchase from the gift shop not knowing this ahead of time. Any packages, back packs or large purses will be checked into a storage locker so leave those behind. Pictures are allowed but with no flash so set your camera accordingly ahead of time. Plenty of security on the property.Entry fee was only five dollars. WELL WORTH IT! Don't miss it when in Cancun. Perfect for culture and history buffs alike.

not too bad for five bucks, but I was expecting a much larger exhibit, it is basically a two room showing of a few Toltec and Mayan artifacts, I expected something that compared to LACMA
