  • Archaeological Museum MARQ is unique for Europe and technically equipped. Lighting, music, holographic effects were shocking. Exposition halls built in so that is available to review how small and large objects. Well built logistics and each room is equipped with electronic information racks. Easy to navigate and explore the Museum on their own. Impressive interesting cognitive games stands for children from toddlers to seniors. Definitely recommend visiting this Museum!

  • Absolutely beautiful museum with the best Christmas tree i have ever seen! The Mayan exhibition was one of the most interesting i have ever visited and made me want to learn more. It was truly breathtaking.
  • Quite well organized museum about local history. Would have wanted more texts in English but audio guide from the internet helped. Maya exhibition was a very nice bonus.
  • The museum is interesting but you need to know more about the country's histories before you can truly appreciate the museum. I do not consider this as a top attraction unless you are really into it.
  • Positive surprise. The Mayan collection is amazing, my suggestion is to pay 1,50€ more and take the guided tour.
  • Good, English info on your smartphone using QR codes, else not much in English in the museum. Interesting exhibits, lots of replicas that you can touch.
