Museo de Arqueología Maya, Fuerte de San Miguel
Local
In one of the mightiest forts of the vice-royal period, dating from the late eighteenth century, this museum is now home to two unique collections: the funerary jade masks of Calakmul, and the funerary ceramic figures of Jaina. In addition, there are some remarkable Mayan stone sculptures. The architecture and splendid collections of the Fuerte de San Miguel were among the main reasons why the city of Campeche was listed by the UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 1999.
