There is a very clean restroom, a small gift sop and some local vendors outside the door. After the walk to the sites this is a great place to cool off before continuing on your... More

It will add a little time to your trip to the ruins but it is very worthwhile! Enjoy it while you are here!

The museum was set up nicely. It has things from the region-not just that site. There was also a section with artifacts from more current times. We enjoyed it.

The remains of the large city that once inhabited this place near Merida are not as large as other sites. However, they are more approachable, and quite lovely. The nearby cenote is great for a cooling swim

The museum at Dzibilchaltun is a nice little museum but very little is in English so knowing Spanish would be a big help.

Must do if you've visited the site. I would go to the museum after touring the site because it is air conditioned and of course the site is not. Trust me, you will welcome the coolness after your walk through the ruins. The museum provides a nice background of information related to the sites. It is well organized and can... More

The grounds and ruins are nice to visit here, but they museum was closed two hours early for no apparent reason. A guard also wouldn't let us see part of the ruins an hour before the closing time and wouldn't give us any reason for this, either. Our guide said he overheard the employees saying that they were having their... More

You must stop here in order to learn about the ruins and the cenote that are the main attractions of the park. The museum offers some replicas but they have some of the original artifacts found by archeologist.
