Maya Archaeology Museum (Museo de Arqueologia Maya) Tours

The small Museo Regional de Arqueologia Maya in the heart of town feels as musty as its 1970s building and most descriptions are in Spanish only, but it does contain plenty of treasures from the region. Jade sculptures, obsidian flints with carved faces, and pottery give a sense of what was inside many of the grand structures in the archeological zones. Ceramic incense pots are decorated with images of Copan’s rulers.

The highlight is a reproduction of a complete shaman’s tomb, laid out just as it was found at the nearby Las Sepulturas site. It contained pieces of pottery, seashells, skulls, and the remains of a sacrificed jaguar.
