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.

Stopped in after visiting the ruins. It’s not a big place and I rushed through in probably 20 minutes. I skipped the tunnel so seeing the replica of the Rosalila temple was nice. If you went into the tunnel and saw this already then I...More

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.

I enjoyed the museum, but then I like most museums. The long tunnel leading to the museum itself created a sense of mystery. Some of the pieces in the museum were replicas (the large red temple in the center gives one a good idea of...More
