And nice place to pass by and enjoy some of the Mayan culture, you'll enjoy its expo and the majestic building too.
Excellent museum with some amazing Maya items on display. English and Spanish explanatory panels. There are professional guides for hire as well. A must for anyone visiting Merida.
This place was pretty cool. It turns out it really isn't that old. They had some interesting exhibits downstairs, but the cool stuff is upstairs. They have a bunch of Mayan architecture exhibits that explain a lot of cool facts.
