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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • What a hidden gem! We went because it was close to the hotel and I am so glad we did. The museum is amazing, even though it is a bit small. The thing that made it stand out was the archaeological site that is attached to it. Who knew that our hotel, the Omni Cancun, was so close to Mayan ruins? I feel fortunate to have stumbled upon such a treasure!

  • An amazing place to go! For me, it was conveniently located right outside the Onni and the place seemed super serene and modern. A place I'd recommend to anyone

  • If there is nothing else to do probably worth going. Inside exhibitions are interesting and the outside walk areas around the ruins are very popular. Cheap entrance £2 and you can stay as long as you like.
