  • Before visiting the Mayan Museum we went to see a temporary exhibition on the toys of the children of all the States of Mexico and the truth was very interesting. The Museum maya very interesting also, is a journey in history and we really liked.

  • While the Museum is small, it serves as preamble if you're visiting the archeological sites. The figures that are shown are reproductions but are quite useful.

  • Open from Tuesday to Sunday from 9 am to 19:00 hrs the cost is 31 (MXN) per person. Three floors with information about the Mayan culture and the State of Quintana Roo. Upon entering, it seems you are in a tree. Recommended for

  • Cool little museum in Chetumal. Not a ton of artifacts but they do have scale models of the main pyramids in the Yucatan for comparison. Does have a very good walk through the different Mayan periods.
  • Its sad that even the astonishingly the Maya culture was and is at present, this museum has a very poor collection and presented with no effort or interest, all of this a reflect of the importance the culture has to the actual goverment! And its not necessary that this museum need to present ancient items, still they have the opportunity of creating a present times exhibit but failed big time, just dissapointing!
  • Got some really cool things inside, just wish they had ac but other than that I enjoyed it.
  • Something to do in the city. Decent exhibits, and lots to see as you walk around. It helps if you understand Spanish. The best thing about it is the air conditioning.
  • The exhibition perfectly complements the already seen Mayan culture panorama .
