The grounds were groomed well, had interesting digs and remnants of early Mayan civilization. The artifacts housed inside were very good, and unique. This museum is easy to get to...very inexpensive, and worth the time to go.

We visited the museum prior to going to Xchitzen-Iza and it was worth the visit. Several of the exhibits had English descriptions and the history of the Mayans was well covered. The outdoor walk is worth the time to see Cancun Mayan ruins. There are...More

My wife and I had greater expectations for the museum. It disappoint us when basically the coolest thing we saw was the sable tiger they have. I was hoping they will have more interesting stuff to see.

Kids are free and we paid 1200 pesos for a visit. My wife and I enjoyed all of the history, our three young sons, not as much, but I would recommend checking it out.

My husband and I really enjoyed viewing the various relics from the Mayan Ruins. However, all the information was in Spanish, so we couldn't read it.

Pleasant location with plenty of information to help you better understand the Mayan Culture in the local region. Many artifacts to see - and even ruins of a village/city/compound on location. Nice plantings of local flora on the ground level. The shop is quite small...More

If you happen to get a less than glorious day in Cancun the Museo de Maya is a pleasant afternoon diversion. Interesting exhibits and outdoor grounds to stroll on make this a nice 1-2 hour worthwhile experience.

It should be about a 15 minute drive. Note that you'll need to go past and make a u-turn at one of their turn-around spots when you go there. I do not think they have a snack bar, however the museum is small and you will be... More

Sorry, we do not know if there are guides or not. We do recall that English language signage has improved since the first year.
