  • Very cool little museum to get a glimpse of Maya life and facts about the Maya. I learned more about the Maya and it was fascinating. If can take a break from partying, this is a must check out.  more »

  • Wonderful museum! Small but filled with a lot of very fine and important pieces from settlements throughout the Mayan world. Please note your admission fee also includes the archaeological site of San Miguelito! Small yet important settlement built in 1250 ACE. Bring some mosquito repellent if you go: the settlement is in a small patch of jungle and you will be eaten alive if you don't! Highly recommended!!
  • Great cultural museum. Cost 70 pesos per person and they want us to put our backpack in their free lockers. The archaeological site is shaded and very interesting and there are Mayan artifacts upstairs in the exhibit.
  • Great modern but small museum. Nice artifacts from different arqueological sites from the area. And with your paid admission into the museum you also get admission into the San Miguelito arquological site. A hidden gem in the heart of the booming hotel zone.
  • The museum pieces are pretty interesting, but most of the information is in Spanish, making it difficult to immerse yourself if you don't know the language. It's a very beautiful museum, and there are some ruins hidden in the garden: don't forget to check them out! You'll also see plenty of iguanas there.
  • This museum has some very cool archaeological findings and displays. I don't speak Spanish all that well and therefore had a hard time understanding most of the explanations. Some of them are also in English though which was nice. The entrance fee was $7 for both me and my wife. We also walked through the San Miguelito ruins as well. For the price it's a great way to spend a couple hours.
