  • The Museum is small but very interesting. It shows quite a few pieces of different types of jade. It has a store of jewels of jade which are made there himself in a specialist workshop. The entrance costs 30 pesos.

  • a small but elegant museum filled with remarkable pieces of maya and modern jade art. if you like jade this is an excellent choice to visit. many do not know that jade was a special stone for the maya and here one can see many pieces that show the reverence.
  • Wonderful place. There is a ship here also
  • Had a lot of good information but got boring. Keep in mind all the pieces are replicas.
  • Not much, boring, small
  • A very interesting Museum, features many replicas of Jade and an explanation of where to locate the original parts. It has a recreated Tomb, great place. At the end you can go to a jewelry store where the essentials would be buying something from Jade.
