San Roque Museum

Originally constructed in 1575 as a church, the San Roque Museum tells the history of the region with a special focus on Maya life.


Relics that speak on the daily lives of the Maya people are nestled into protective exhibits at the San Roque Museum, with a good number of these pieces coming from the nearby site of Ek Balam. If you walk outside to the patio you will come upon the place where three men died by firing squad and sparked a revolution.
