Directions to Palacio Canton
The Canton Palace was built during the late Porfiriato by General Francisco Canton Rosado (1833-1917), who lived there until his death in 1917.
The project was led by the Italian architect Enrico Desserti, and construction engineer Manuel G. Canton Ramos. The majesty of the building stands out for its size and the materials used in its construction, some of them, such as the staircase, marble floors and balustrades, were imported from France, Italy and Germany. It is said that the first elevator reached the Yucatan is the one still preserving in the museum.
The Museum shows the most important aspects of the Mayan culture, the first inhabitants and their environment. Today it houses a large collection of Yucatec Mayan culture artifacts, consisting of carved stones, various sculptures and ceramic samples. Most of them were obtained from archaeological sites in the Yucatan Peninsula. There are pieces from the Preclassic to the Late Postclassic period. The collection is constantly evolving to offers a varied content to museum visitors. Temporary exhibitions are also presented.
