Our private tour Guide Konrad Heinz highly recommended to get tickets to the Museum as well and believe me I thanked him for this recommendation. A visit to this Museum is the best way to end the Copan Mayan Ruins tour. Highly recommend this Museum.

Don't miss this while visiting the ruins. This will provide details that you will not find at the actual sites, and all signs are in Spanish and English. Many of the original and best preserved carvings are located in this Museum.

Copan Sculpture Museum was built over a weak foundation. You can notice cracks near the beautiful entrance tunnel. The Rosa Lila Pyramid replica is amazing. But due to the same problem: weak foundation, it shows cracks, too. Ticket price seemed too expensive for me.
