Mayan archeology museum in Cancun

Mayan Archeology Museum

With an impressive collection of Mayan artifacts and relics, the Museum of Archeology displays more than 800 objects dating back to the Postclassical period (1200 AD to 1500 AD). The objects on display were found at the Mayan archeological site El Rey in Cancún, the ruins in Tulum, and Coba. The museum features ancient treasures made from stone, stucco, and clay as well as pottery, jewelry, carvings, masks, and traditionally misshapen skulls that reflect Mayan beliefs.

Located just south of the Convention Center in the hotel zone, the museum holds special exhibitions throughout the year.  The Museo Arqueologico de Cancún is affiliated with the National History and Anthropological Institute (NHAI / INAH). The museum hours are Tuesday through Friday, 9:00 am to 8:00 pm, Saturday and Sunday, 10:00 am to 9:00 pm. A small admission fee may apply. Complete the visit to the museum by visiting the nearby Mayan ruins of El Rey and El Meco in the hotel zone.
