Spectacular ruins
Dec 2019
The entire area of the national park is an amazing system of temples and is a spectacular homage to the Mayan culture of thousands of years ago.

Mayan Hidden History

Deep hidden in the jungle of Guatemala, a piece of Art, history, mystic,
Every piece you see is a treasure. Walking to the sun, thinking about the lost ages of time.
Beautiful, magic...

Shocking! A disgrace for this wonderful destination.
May 2019 • Couples
This must be the worst museum we ever visited. Badly maintained and arranged. The exhibition rooms do not have light. So to see the items we had to go along the glass cases with our lamps from the mobile phones!! And this at 14:00 hrs during the day.
Staff sits slumped on their chairs which reflects the total non-caring attitude of whomsoever is in charge of this museum. They even have the odacity to charge an entrance fee! What a shame for the country of Guatemala to treat their wonderful heritage in such a way. Skip the museum, you will not miss anything.

Buy tickets for the museums before you get there

We knew to buy tickets for Tikal National Park at a Banural before we arrived, but didn’t know we also had to buy tickets for the museums. Our own fault, but disappointing nonetheless. Loved the park and recommend going.

No better than the Centro de Investigation
Mar 2019
Nothing to see besides some badly deteriorated stellae and some photograph placards concerning the proceeded of excavation at Tikal by the first Western archeologists starting in 1882. The prohibition against photography is no great sacrifice. Entry should definitely be free.

went in with some small change to the gate keeper. the museum is good and there were boards that explains the excavation. good complement with the books I read. kind of dark inside though.

some excellent pieces

while the Tikal Museum is rather poor, the Morley Museum, now located in a new research center built with Japanese funding, has some really amazing exhibits. it's definitely worth the visit.

Beautiful Mayan ruin.
Jan 2017 • Couples
My wife and I did a tour of Tikal Mayan Ruins and really enjoyed the massive complex. The ruins are in good condition and you can get the feel for how large the city was in its prime. We had a Guatemalan guide who really explained the buildings we viewed. There are many structures still undiscovered buried by jungle. The city is slowly being uncovered by archeologist. We had a very nice time visiting Tikal. There was lots of armed security guards around Tikal, and we felt very safe.

Worth the price of admission

We really enjoyed visiting the museums this trip to Tikal - plenty to see and to learn if you take the time to look at the photos and read the captions.
