Acerca de Museo Maya de Cancún

If your children love history then the Mayan Museum is a place they should visit. It is located in the heart of the hotel zone and you can get there by car or public transport. This year marks 10 years since its inauguration and offering an excellent service.

Here you have the opportunity to appreciate one of the most important archaeological collections of the Mayan culture. There is also an exhibition of pieces found in places like Chichen Itzá, Palenque or Comalcalco. There are three important rooms that your tour includes.

  • First room: it is focused on the archeology of Quintana Roo, from the first discoveries in the area to the time of the conquest and the colony.
  • Second room: here you will learn in depth about the Mayan culture, such as its origin and development. The exhibits come from various territorial areas that have been loaned by other important museums such as those of Chiapas and Yucatan.
  • Third room: in it you will find temporary exhibitions offered by the museum, you can find out more about its agenda on its Facebook page.

Your ticket to the museum includes a pass to the archaeological zone of San Miguelito, a space with 4 groups where large families are thought to have lived in the years before the Spanish conquest. It also has an incredible view of the Nichupté lagoon. For Mexicans, admission is free on Sundays on presentation of identification.

What is Lorem Ipsum?

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Where does it come from?

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

Why do we use it?

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
