For its thoughtful design if nothing else, this museum is worth an hour or two if you are interested in maya culture. It is split into thirds, the top being cielo, or heaven, the middle, tierra or earth, and the bottom xibalba, or the underworld. The ceiba tree, the tree of life, stands in the middle of it all. There are good interactive kiosks for kids (and adults!) and the displays are informative in both English and Spanish. I particularly liked the reproduction of the murals at Bonapak as I can't seem to ever make it there. I am proud of Chetumal and Mexico for providing this small but interesting glimpse into the their culture. Only caution - it's dark in there. Keep your eyes open, I slipped and almost twisted an ankle! Be sure also to visit the book store next door - great stuff.
