Cancun has a newly opened architectural pearl: the new Cancun Maya Museum that shows a very interesting collection of pre-Hispanic finds from Cancun and the rest of the State of Quintana Roo. The large, modern and well illuminated showrooms expose a variety of objects that have been found in the archaeological areas of the State.
The Museum which is located in Cancun’s hotel zone, surrounded by shady green areas of tropical vegetation and a small archaeological zone, “San Miguel” with several temples and altars, offers the visitor a very nice visit and a short break from the beach activities. For all those who visit the famous pre-Hispanic ruins of Tulum, Coba and even Chichén Itza in Yucatan, the museum’s collections complement very well the experience and for anyone else the museum opens a window into the cultural wealth of the region.
The Maya Museum is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 10 to 22 hrs. The museum is located just in front of Hotel Omni; bus routes 1 and 2 will leave you right at the entrance.
