As a structure, the building is of average architectural interest. The 40 year-old murals are of interest more for the fact that they are historically honest and more Maya-centric than those of previous generations.
What made it exciting for us was the fact that earlier that day the new president of Mexico had delivered a speech there--wearing a guayabera instead of a suit--and announced that a high-speed railroad would be built between Merida and the Riviera Maya.
Later, watching the news (Mexican) on television, it was fun seeing the site of the speech and knowing that we had been walking there only hours after the event.
