Museo Maya De Cancun - Review
Opened in 2012, this massive museum has three giant exhibition halls of more than 4400 square feet each. Inside this museum, the central attractions consist of 14000 year old skeletal that remains recovered from underwater caves, ancient artefacts and other excavated exhibits that beautifully outline the history of the Meso-Americans. Closeby, an outdoor trail leads to some fascinating Mayan ruins, worth looking into even on a rainy day. The museum is elevated high above the sea to prevent destruction from natural elements. As the Cancún's original anthropology museum was shut down in 2006 due to structural damage from hurricanes, this new museum features hurricane-resistant reinforced glass. The price of admission includes access to the adjoining San Miguelito archaeological site. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Cancun itinerary 3 days.

Museo Maya De Cancun, Cancun Reviews
Fantastic museum! Lots of very interesting Mayan artifacts! A must go to when in Cancun... if you are interested in Mayan Culture! Outdoor courtyard & gardens complete with Mayan Ruin are so well kept and very tranquil.. All within the heart of Cancun! 🇲🇽 ❤️
The museum is built around a Mayan ruin, which is a nice touch. You can walk around outside the museum to see the ruins. The museum also have Mayan artifacts in display. Although many items only have Spanish descriptions. The parking lot is really small and get filled up very quickly. So taking a bus to go there is a good choice.
I would love to return to Cancun. We visited museum because our trip was handed some rain. We had to cancel our water park adventure and took in the museum instead. Was still a treat to learn more about the history of the land and Maya culture
Close proximity to our hotel. Entrance cost $5 per person. Amazing outdoor natural jungle area with the original ruins. Only reason why I'm not giving five stars is because there were no English translations for descriptions of artifacts.
This place is really big, nice and clean with air condition. It's nice to see some of the things that mayan used. Take the elevator going up, we walked cause at didn't know there was one. The landscape outside is really beautiful. They also have some mayan ruins on the property, but it was a really far walk and it was blazing hot. The ticket was only 5 dollars on tripadvisor, but we had to go across the street to claim it before going to the museum....
