You can see this in about an hour. It's not a big place, but it is laid out so as to give visitors a good overview of the Mayan world as viewed by the Mayans themselves.

This was our second visit to this museum. I like it. It is small compared to other museums but it is very interesting and informative. It is worth your time to visit if you are interested in the Mayan culture.

I have been to many museums both large and small...after visiting this one my first thought was "what a waste of money," The garden in the court was was nice, not wonderful and the venue lacked substance

This place has a wealth of artifacts from the Mayan civilization and there is also a garden set up at back which is a replica of a myan village complete with white limestone roads and a well.

From the outside it looks like a small city museum, very unimpresive but once inside... man, that was a nice surprise. Well kept and great displays, first class. It's small but well put together, I will say is worth your time.

Well worth an hour of your time, stop in here to learn about pre-colombian Mayan culture. An interactive screen lets you calculate numbers in the Mayan system of dots, lines, and zeros. I arrived at 9 when they opened and got in for free because...More

Really great museum that incorporates a perfect balance of information and audiovisual art, including artifacts, models, lighting, and art pieces to educate you about the rich history of this area. Don't miss the art exhibits that are in the buildings bordering the inner gardens. All...More

I don't believe it was anything.... If it was it was so cheap I forgot about it.
