The Puuc Archaeological Museum is now officially under construction. In the Kabah archeological zone, located just south of Mérida, the museum, which is slated to be a bit of a cultural hotspot, will take up an enormous 4,800 square meters of space.

The museum will showcase over 360 recovered artifacts from Section 3 of the Maya Train route, many of which will be on public display for the first time.

Additionally, it will offer a fantastic location for lectures and other cultural events. According to reports, between 85% and 90% of the artifacts discovered along Section 3 of the Maya Train route—which included sites in Calkin, Campeche, all the way to Izamal and Yucatán—have already been assigned a classification.

We’re building a museum in a region that hasn’t seen a lot of investment in cultural, academic, and scientific subjects over the years, according to Arturo Chab Cárdenas, head of the Yucatán delegation of the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH).

The new development will pay off a historic debt by bringing tourism and culture to the area, which is extremely exciting for the locals. It also announces that it will debut in December this year.
