“Big and beautifull”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013

It's located next to the Mayan ruins and cost $7.00 US to go in. It is huge inside with a ramp going up to the open area second floor with lots of exhibits to see. If you are a history buff go for it and of course the two ruins themselves are awesome. Worthwhile.

“A great introduction to mayan culture, ancient and modern.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2013

This is a children's museum, but it was a great way for me as a foreigner to learn more about the maya people before visiting the ruins. There were exhibits on the mayan alphabet, number and calendar system, clothing, daily life activities, food- everything that would give our visit to the ruins later more meaning. The exhibits were hands on, great for kids but also for adults who like a more interactive experience.
I can't remember if the exhibits are in English as well as Spanish...there is a guide available.
The entrance fee is only $2 I think, a real bargain. It is open Tuesday to Sunday, 8 am to 12 pm and 1 pm tp 5 pm.
Don't forget to climb the tower in the front corner of the building for a great panoramic view of the town and its surroundings!

“School kids”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

This museum is geared towards school age children. It is small, and only moderately interesting for adults.
