Playa del Carmen will soon be opening a new museum. Once it has moved offices from the old city hall, the remaining structure will be converted into a new museum. The museum’s theme is currently focused on “THE CITY HISTORY OF PLAYA DEL CARMEN”. It has a centralized location. It is located on the corners of 20th avenue, 25th avenue and between the 8th street and 10th street. It is three blocks from the world renowned 5th avenue. It sits next to an outdoor auditorium and a large park. The Playa del Carmen museum is expected to be the city’s central tourist point.
