Much smaller than expected. I enjoyed the outdoor path to the ruins (400 meter walk according to the guard) mainly because it was the only peaceful, quiet place I found during my 6-day stay in Cancun.

They have a great collection of Mayan artifacts and details associated to the area represented but needed additional interactive exhibits or museum staff t help explain some of this in greater detail. It was a little boring.

It should be about a 15 minute drive. Note that you'll need to go past and make a u-turn at one of their turn-around spots when you go there. I do not think they have a snack bar, however the museum is small and you will be... More
