Tulum’s new archaeological museum in Jaguar Park nearing completion

Tulum, Q.R. — The new museum of the archaeological zone of Tulum, being built by the Secretariat of Agrarian, Territorial and Urban Development (Sedatu) within the Jaguar National Park, is 80 percent complete, the agency reported.

According to information released by Sedatu, the zone will expose the influence of the Mayan culture with the aim of detonating local tourism. It will house archaeological monuments and natural and cultural wealth of federal reserves, through low-impact tourism.

The property has a conservative architectural style with classic lines. Those in charge of the design are the C733 Architecture Collective, Sedatu reported.

In addition, it has three exhibition rooms and will have 360 collection pieces. Those in charge of carrying out the curatorship are Juan Manuel Garibay and Karina Romero Blanco.

Sedatu indicated that in order to facilitate the arrival of visitors, the property will have a Maya Train connection with a Tulum on section 5 south, and will also interconnect with the archaeological zone through a 70-meter bridge over the federal 307 highway.
