Very cool little museum to get a glimpse of Maya life and facts about the Maya. I learned more about the Maya and it was fascinating. If can take a break from partying, this is a must check out.

Not many locals know about this museum, so check your maps and location before you go, especially by a local bus. The entrance fee can be paid in $$. They will ask you to place your bags into lock before you enter - very strong...More

Do they have English guides? Or can they connect us with a knowledgeable local guide who could lead us? We went on our own before and felt we missed a lot.

Sorry, we do not know if there are guides or not. We do recall that English language signage has improved since the first year.
Hola, 1) If I tell the bus driver we are going to Museo Maya will he tell us when we are there? 2) What time do you open tomorrow morning? 3) How much, in pesos, is the entrance fee? Gracias

Bus drivers will nod "Yes" even if they don't speak English. It is part of being nice in Quintana Roo. Ask to get off at the Captains Cove, or Museo Maya de Cancun.
Is there any parking nearby?

Yes, but if you stay in the hotel zone you can take a bus for less than $1.00 - extremely easy.
