Archaeological Museum of Cancun
It was built in 1982 and houses approximately 800 objects belonging to the Maya Culture, found at the archaeological compounds of El Rey, Coba and Tulum, which are part of the attractions in the region.
The Museum’s pre-Hispanic treasure is composed of ceramics, sculptures, carved monoliths, and other stone works. Temporary collections are exhibited in here, besides its permanent exhibition, in a room especially arranged for this purpose.
In 1988 Hurricane Gilbert caused huge damage on the Museum’s installations, which had to be closed to the public until 1994.
