It is tri-lingual. English, Spanish, and Maya. All interactive displays teach you to say numbers, days of the week, months, etc. Very innovative low technology displays that are pretty cool. Nice view from up there as well.

They are no longer open at the listed in spite of having signs all over town. Had 2 very disappointed children. The guard says it's been at least 7 months that they open for large groups by appointment only.

Our family just visited the museum today and were pleasantly surprised. Some of the interactive displays don't work and there are spelling mistakes in some of the descriptions, however the our kids didn't mind and were thoroughly entertained. Worth a visit with younger kids.

exibits are hands-on for kids, if you have kids they'll enjoy it. They had hand cranks - spin them, hear animal sounds. Very touchy-feely.

I had to stop by here and have a look at the children Maya Museum. I can highly recommend bringing your children here, specially if they are interested in the Maya World. It is a very nicely done, interactive Museum.
