Mayan Culture Museum Chetumal, describes Maya worldview using the “Ceiba”

Share This
The Museum of the Mayan Culture in Chetumal, is one of the few museums in the world that without exhibiting pieces, figures or archaeological vestiges manages to delight with a most representative and interesting exhibition of the Mayan Culture.
Its museography is in charge of Jorge Agostoni and the Maya exhibition is mounted in such a way to describe the Maya worldview, from bottom to top, across the three floors of the building, in the shape of a Maya “Ceiba” (Maya’s sacred tree).
The museum obvioulsy features cultural exhibits & reproductions, plus artifacts of the Mayan people.
A bit of history about the place you visit is always good, so when you go to Chetumal, we recommend you to visit the Museum of Mayan Culture.
It might be small compared to other big museums in Mexico and the world, but this museum boasts interesting pieces in display though. It is air conditioned, clean and well organized.
AddressAv de los Héroes, Centro, 77000 Chetumal, Q.R.
