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

I was pleased with the signage explaining each display. The lighting and arrangements made for fabulous detailed photos. It was also peaceful and cool.

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.

These are all sculptures that have come from the ruins themselves and moved to protect them from the elements. Many I might not have noticed at the ruins themselves because they were small or hidden by something else. I appreciated the full scale model of...More

We were exhaustedly the time we got to the museum but the sculptures shouldn't be missed. It is an unusual museum and well maintained. Definitely worth the time.
