As guys said before it was closed. We came at Sunday 3pm by walking through a not very pleasant surroundings and all that we can see was closed doors and gates without any sign with working hours. Entrance had a lot of trash on it like it never opened for weeks.
Was keen to visit this museum and double-ychecked that it would be open on a Monday. Several official websites and two guidebooks agreed that it was open every day from 10.00am. I got there at 10.20am only to find it all locked up, and no information on Opening Hours posted out the front. Went off to explore some nearby churches... 更多
Herbal medicine is a very important tradition in Chiapas and the Mayan Medicine Museum is interesting because it provides a glimpse into the healing beliefs of the people. The information is interesting but the museum is very basic, five rooms that represent the main types of healers. There used to be a botanical garden that has been completely forgotten and... 更多
Overall very interesting, and having visited Chamulla earlier in the day it made more sense than if we hadn't. I feel it needs a lot of government money spent on it to make it more of an attraction and preserve local culture.

This was an ok trip for us because we were lucky and had our Spanish teacher there to explain everything to us, so we did learn a lot about Mayan culture. The video of the midwife and birth looked like it was from the mid 90s, and the English voice-over was awful. That being said, it was exceptionally interesting. We... 更多
I have been here several times over the past few years and although I found some of it informative and interesting this place could do so much better with a little work. In a strange way it does capture more of the region than most would believe as it is a bit run down and sort of thrown together "sloppy."... 更多
This could have been so good. The Chiapas region is the centre of indigenous Mayan culture and the ancient knowledge of illness, medical treatments and plants should be treasured. What you get instead is a dilapidated garden with medicinal plants and trees barely labelled, exhibit rooms that are poorly lit and captioned in Spanish (yes you can get a laminated... 更多
