Some of the stelae on the Copan site are original and some are replicas. The originals are usually under roofs to protect them from further damage from the weather. However, this makes them harder to photograph. The ones in the museum are much easier to see.
The museum also has a full-size replica of the Rosalila temple, which was discovered under a later structure. You can go into a tunnel at the ruins that gives you glimpses of the buried structure, but you can see the entire thing in all its painted glory at the museum.
The exhibits are well-placed and explained. The best part is the tunnel entrance, which leads to a spectacular view of Rosalila.
