Dzibilchaltun Museum

Table of Contents

The Dzibilchaltun Museum was reopened in 1994 and renamed the Mayan People’s Museum, replacing the old Dzibilchaltun Site Museum. Nearly 700 archaeological and historical pieces are exhibited, some of them shown for the first time, which summarize three thousand years of development of the Mayan culture.

Exhibition rooms

The permanent exhibition covers from pre-Hispanic times to the twentieth century. The cultural development of the Mayan people, their continuity and transcendence in fields such as arts, architecture, language, dress, religion, social customs, economic processes, sciences and techniques, are disseminated.

The collection is made up of archaeological, historical and ethnographic materials, with objects of daily and ritual use, such as ceramics, carved stone, stelae, civil, and religious sculptures, textiles and clothing.
