The fort and museum are small, but they have the jade masks found in the tombs at Calakmul, so a must see for those visiting Mayan sites. Most treasures like tomb masks are housed in the big anthropological museum in Mexico City.

Very good Mayan items, most of them poorly exhibited. The building itself is very interesting, an old fort to protect Campeche from the pirates.

The views from the top of the fort are great. Inside is an interesting small museum with the skeleton and some Mayan artefacts.
