Cancun Opens Museum on Mayan Civilization

Posted: Jan. 2nd, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse
Mayan Museum of Cancun

The Mayan Museum of Cancun may celebrate a culture that took ages to construct their immense and wonderful architectures, but the museum itself only took six years to complete. Full of information for inquiring minds, this is a great family location as well as one that's indoors, so it'll help you avoid any (further) sunburns you might have acquired while on vacation.

Cancun is not all about tanning and partying: it's also part of the ancient Mayan heartland of Mexico and now home to the Mayan Museum of Cancun, a $15-million cultural and educational center that arrives just in time for the end of the world (or not).

As reported by Rosemary McClure for the L.A. Times, the museum has three 4,400-square-foot exhibition halls and a collection of 350 ancient artifacts , including 14,000-year-old pieces found in the underwater caves of nearby Tulum.
