Just in time for the end of the Mayan Calendar: Maya Museum in Cancun

Just in time for the much anticipated end of the Mayan Calendar, one of Cancun’s most anticipated attractions, the Maya Museum, opened its doors after six years of construction and an investment of $15 million.

The Maya Museum’s structure has become the largest ever built by the National Institute of Anthropology (INAH) since the Templo Mayor Musuem was built in 1987. It is home to 350 archaeological artifacts that took 30 years to procure, relics that have never been on display, and new discoveries from recent excavations. Cancun’s Maya Museum also boasts three exhibition halls of more than 4,400 square feet, two of which are permanent and one temporary venue for national and international exhibitions.
