Mundo Maya Museum Interior Taking Form
Specialists in museology, related with international projects, have begun working on the interior of the Mundo Maya Museum of Merida. Currently they are observing the advances made on the façade replicas of Ek Balam and Calakmul.
Supervising the work, the Secretary of Public Works, Jorge Arjona Puerto, informed the press, after taking a working tour, that the interior, “which will marvel local, national, and international tourists,” has begun to take form.
The replicas of Ek Balam and Calakmul represent one of the largest attractions in the museum.
Arjona Puerto also reviewed works pertaining to the Exhibition Hall, where Ethnography, History, and Archeology will be displayed. Here visitors will also have the opportunity to learn more about the Mayan Cosmovision.
In the Exhibition Hall there will also be multimedia displays about the Mayan Culture.
The underground parking lot is at 95% completion and has 220 parking spaces.
Arjona Puerto finished touring the museum by reviewing the work on the elliptical Ceiba, the metal structure that is the principal building and museum´s emblem. The main lobbies, exhibition hall, multiple use areas, souvenir shops and ticket booths will be housed within the elliptical Ceiba.
At the entrance, workers are putting the finishing touches on what will be the Main Plaza. It resembles the Quadrangle of the Nuns from the ancient Mayan city of Uxmal.
