The museum is beautiful. The typical clothing is amazing, but maybe even more beautiful is the museum grounds!

An excellent museo to see all the different styles of Hupils made throughout Guatemala. I thought parts of the museo were very dark and sometimes hard to see pieces but overall very well done.

A bit boring, but you can get a combined ticket if you visit the adjoining Popol Vuh (which is well worth it) for about three dollars more, and its temporary exhibits of photos and modern art and portraits was pretty interesting, as of May 2018.

No. There is no restaurant near the Museum. And you cannot find a taxi inside the Universidad Francisco Marroquín. You have to walk outside the University campus. Maybe 500 meters or so.
