“Small but nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2014

exibits are hands-on for kids, if you have kids they'll enjoy it. They had hand cranks - spin them, hear animal sounds. Very touchy-feely.

“Definitely bring your kids here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

I had to stop by here and have a look at the children Maya Museum. I can highly recommend bringing your children here, specially if they are interested in the Maya World. It is a very nicely done, interactive Museum.

“What a waste of time and a dollar!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

Most of the displays that were interactive were broken... We didn't expect much for a dollar but we received even less, much less! The information printed on the displays was useless and full of spelling errors and even if I would have been a school-aged child (which I am not), I would have been bored to death. How could anyone give this any kind of a good review? Miss it and spend the money on a delicious lemonade at any of the local restaurants instead!

“Casa K'inich a must see before you visit the Ancient Ruins of Copan”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

This children's museum will explain a lot of things before you go to the ruins, the Ballgame, the food the Maya ate, the language, and the culture etc. It's $1 for adults and children are free. It will only take an hour, closed Mondays Open 8 a.m. until noon 1 p.m. until 5 call first if you want 2651-4105 or if you want to book a group tour. Fourteen additional exhibits were added in 2012.

“Big and beautifull”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

It's located next to the Mayan ruins and cost $7.00 US to go in. It is huge inside with a ramp going up to the open area second floor with lots of exhibits to see. If you are a history buff go for it and of course the two ruins themselves are awesome. Worthwhile.
