We loved this museum so well laid out, lit, with the artifacts displayed for close inspection and with explanations in English. Cost 25 pesos to get in and worth every centavo.

The art in this museum was very representative of the Yucatan. We throughly enjoyed our tour through their interesting and small rooms. The gift shops at the end were excellent and well priced.
