ORTEGA MUNOZ, Allan. Morocoy Community Museum: Its Importance as a Place of Cultural Sociability for the Community and for the Tourist. Estud. cult. maya [online]. 2021, vol.58, pp.271-292.  Epub 09-Oct-2021. ISSN 0185-2574.

The Morocoy Community Museum (Quintana Roo, Mexico) is a cultural spot since 2015. The goal of this paper is to develop a visitor’s study, analyzing its function as a means of cultural and educational socialization through the record book and its written mentions about the museum, from January 2019 to January 2020, with 306 individual registers including sex, place of origin and opinions. Crosstab tabulations, hypothesis tests, and logistic regression were performed to compare the characteristics of the visitors categorized by sex, procedence, and five categories of opinions. The main results have shown that locals see the museum as an important space for the knowledge of their historical and cultural heritage, meanwhile foreigners have shown more interest about museum exhibition, and the documentation presented there. There is not a statistical difference in the assistance between sexes. The final reflection is about the importance to develop an institutional policy, from the Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia, to support the logistic of creation of these kind of museums, in view of the interest to create them along the route of the Maya Train system.
