TOURS TO LEARN THE PRE HISPANIC MAYAN CULTURE:

-Museum of the Mayan cultureThe Maya Culture Museum is considered to be the most complete of southeastern Mexico and one of the most beautiful and technological "Mundo Maya" (Mayan world) is located in the downtown Chetumal (40 minutes from the Magic Bacalar), on Avenue Heroes. In addition to safeguarding videos it has replicas of steel, lintels, wonderful reproduction of the Bonampak murals, sculptures, artifacts, models of palaces and temples, is the only museum that is built according to the Mayan worldview "ceiba" in which the world is divided into three levels: the earth, the underworld and the sky. The interactive videos teach the number system invented and used by pre-Columbian Maya civilization. Maya regarded the sensational “ceiba” as the sacred tree. It explains that death is just another step that leads to the underworld. The museum is divided into 8 rooms that tell the development of Mayan culture, its origins, as well as various aspects of daily life, agriculture, trade, science, technology and cosmology. It also has rooms for temporary exhibitions, auditorium and gardens. It has very nice detail within the same museum. They have a database that will indicate your real name in Maya according to the date of birth.

These are just some details of the museum and the visit is almost obligatory and is very interesting for children as the tour of several rooms looks almost like a game!!
