This museum covers very interesting and well done history of the island of Cozumel. We were able to take our time throughout the rooms & take pics. Nice to see the school kids there too!

Come here to brush up on some Cozumel history. Mainly marine history to be exact. It's not a huge museum but if you're on the island, it's something to do for an hour to get out of the hot sun or the rain.

This is an old question, but in case it's useful to someone - relatively easy. The museum is about half a mile from the cruise ship dock. The directions are easy - you just walk along the oceanfront main road (Avenida Rafael... More
