Great way to spend an afternoon. The outdoor section of the museum is not something I've experienced before. Very authentic. Being outside was also peaceful and a nice escape from the busy streets and beaches.

Close to the beach, this "museum" is a must, if you´re staying only in cancun for your holidays. there are some small pyramids but you can´t compare it to big sites, like chichen itza.

The museum was only about a mile from Sandos where we were staying, so I walked to it one day and was pleasantly surprised. The exhibits are professionally done and very interesting. The surprise of the visit, however, was the archeological dig in the jungle...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.

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.
