If you have an interest in learning about this amazing culture, this museum offers a great place to start. It provides good insight into the essence of these conquered peoples. It seemed to us that it promoted a sense of pride within the modern day Maya which in our opinion is refreshing.
I would agree with some of the criticisms offered by other reviewers; the signage was located very low (for whose benefit?), there is virtually no signage to direct you, some of the "trivia" games were a distraction and it does take some effort and planning to get to the museum. The price of admission is a bit high also.
It would be beneficial for tourists (taxi drivers please don't run me over!) to have shuttle buses from Centro to the museum throughout the day.
Having listed my criticisms I have to say we felt enriched by our experience and felt a renewed vigor to learn more.
