This has long been one of the World’s great museums. Everything about it is beautiful. Wondering in an out of the dramatic exterior and interior spaces, an architecturally brilliant and dramatic courtyard covered by what must be the world’s largest free-standing canopy - all held by a single post, like an umbrella - one is awed by the thousands of mesmerizing relics, artifacts and the pieces of monolithic art, all testament to remarkable ancient civilizations, now largely destroyed. The impact is unforgettable. One question kept creeping into my mind in this third visit: Where is the gold? Was it taken to Spain?

Place is huge and took me about 6 hours to see all the artifacts. I recommend going to a room with huge Maya calendar first.
