  • The Museum provides more knowledge about the Mayan culture, because it allows to know stelae of Uaxactun, Copan, the replica of the murals of Bonampak, his concept of the Xibalba, etc. In addition a model compares the pyramids of different Mayan cities in the countries where this great culture flourished. We loved it!

  • 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 .
