We heard great things about this museum, but tried 2 different days to go and it was closed. If you go, it may be worth having the concierge physically call the day you intend to visit to make sure that it is open as the website doesn't seem to be accurate.

It must be on your must see list.I have been visiting Merida for the past 6 years as a snow bird.If you want to start your journey then this is " the Must Be On Your must See list". Excellent video/audio presentations and much better location than the Anthropology and History Museum.Very modern and a perfect panoramic view of the city from the pavilion center with easy wheelchair accessibility.

The film about the meteor impact was fascinating. The geology section was also interesting. We weren't expecting the great dinosaur exhibit. The number of Mayan artifacts is very impressive and well-displayed. Don't miss the before/after pictures of some of the Mayan ruins.

The new Mayan Museum is not close to Gran Plaza, but most autobuses running up Calle 60 will get you there. This is a modern museum with the latest display and exhibit technology. It is also a research and educational center. If you go for a program and a museum visit, it could take several hours.

This Museum is brand new, opening 21 December, 2012, they are still putting the finishing touches to it. The architecture is fantastic in itself. The displays are nicely presented, with a lot of interactive things to share. The Cafe at the Museum has good food, coffee and juices, and is very user friendly.
