A lot of history, great learning experience. I recommend this museum to everybody. The museum offers a walk through the geography, the Mayans, European settlers, the people and how Honduras became what it is today. You'll enjoy the "Avenida de las Sombrillas" Go!

This is a must see museum in Tegucigalpa. Given the size of the facility and the financial constraints, the museum is well done. It provides a history of the area from prehistoric to modern times. The jewel in the crown is the well done movie at the end that details some of the Mayan culture.

Along with places such as CCET and MUA, the MIN is one of the biggest patrons for contemporary Honduran art. If you're interested in a true immersive experience to the local culture, better not miss their exhibits! They also have a very interesting virtual tour of the Mayan Acropolis of Copan, a must see to revisit the experience or to... More

It is in a beautiful building with nice stairs inside.The staff are very friendly; the girl at the admissions table spoke good English to explain everything about the visit. On the entrance, you have to leave your camera and cell phone in... More

This colonial building used to house all minister offices a long time ago and has since been turned into a museum, funnily old locals still call it " Palacio de los Ministerios", which can confuse you a bit when asking for directions. Inside you time travel through Honduran history, from prehispanic to recent history. There is a virtual tour of... More

Went there near closing time so we didn’t get to watch the movie. The museum doesn’t have explanations in english but they provided us a guide free of cost. He spoke great english and went through the museum. he talked about the main historical events. Really helped us better understand the country’s background and the culture. I highly recommend this...

if you want to get a quick crash course on honduras, this is a good place. the 2nd floor housed the history from the beginning all the present. very informative. not too overwhelming. i went early hoping that I will be the first, but got beaten by a group of school kids. 1 hour would cover the whole walk-through but...

Wonderful guided tour by Mauricio - and a very high-quality presentation. We left with a surprisingly better understanding of Honduran history and identity.

What a better way to display the history of our great country other than with a great museum? In the MIN as its known, you will find magnificent exhibits of the history of Homduras and its people.
