  • The entrance to the place is very economical and they didn't charge us more for being foreigners. The museum has a rich collection of Mayan artifacts, as well as works of art and sculptures of all kinds. The only thing I would like is to give some maintenance to some areas that already look worn out over time. The rest is very good
  • No English. Not much there. Building is nice.
