We love the beaches in Cancun, but there isn't much culture...so we really enjoyed this site. The archaeological site is very interesting, totally walkable and nicely documented. I did wish the signs had drawings of the buildings for a better visual beyond the text; it...More

We went to the Mayan Museum and site and it really was a great time! The sites are interesting and the nature is beautiful. It's in the hotel zone but it's very quiet. The museum will be interesting to those who are intrigued by anthropology.

Just a short ride from the Resort with many artifacts. A good place to take the kids or just to see for yourselves.

Only 75 pesos per person to visit this fabulous museum full of information, artifacts with an outside archeological zone (filles with camouflaged iguanas). The temporary exhibit by photographer Serge Barbeau was amazing and truly moving.

We purchased tickets on site, just inside the entrance area in front of the gift shop. I do not remember the price of the tickets but it was not unreasonable. Have a good time and take good walking shoes.
