Be sure to take the tour of the museum and also learn about the philanthropy work Casa del Jade has taken pride in developing within the community.

As both museums are closed on Sundays and close early on Saturdays, it might be best to check them out between Monday and Friday if possible.
Surrounded by nature, the museum shows a variety of mayan textiles, and there is a great shop, Proteje, next to the museum, where you can find unique textile pieces, that include the name of the indigenous communi...

Museo Popol Vuh Guatemala City
This is an excellent introduction to a tour of the indigenous parts and ruins of Guatemala, along with visits to the archeological and textile museums.
In cancun there are some nice museums with mayan art, but this one has unique artifacts.

ChocoMuseo Antigua
Both museums are a feast for the senses.
There's a free museum and shop/cafe to wander around and learn some of the history, origins and development of chocolate, but it's really worth taking the chocolate making class.

This has many attractions in one place, the coffee and music museums, the horse riding, horse stable, souveniers, the views....definitely a must if you are staying for more than 1 day in Antigua
I was very impressed with the luscious gardens, the nursery, the museums and the store.

This place is full of history and it is basically the heart of Guatemala where the government has their offices and also a museum.

All the staff at the museum are lovely and friendly and Danilo, the guide at the Museum who speaks perfect English, is always around if you need anything translating from Spanish that you are struggling with.
The rest of the staff at the museum are also very knowledgeable and passionate about preserving this craft, something the museum holds as an important part of their mission.
Museo del Ferrocarril Guatemala City
Our 3 year old son loves trains so visiting this museum was a must see for us while on our trip to Guatemala.
Great Museum and great Value
The grounds of Santa Domingo are lovely, the buildings and ruins are fascinating; they have a lovely pool and a hotel, but the best part is the group of small museums inside -- glassware, pottery, archaeological i...
Walk through the many museums to the Hotel Casa Santo Domingo ( suggest go through from the back entrance and do the hotel bit last).
Cojolya Museum and Store Santiago Atitlan
The museum is near the market, a bit on the outskirts of town, but it is the perfect place to learn about Guatemala's greatest handicraft.
The store/museum is small but with very fine hand woven items.
We really enjoyed visiting the museums this trip to Tikal - plenty to see and to learn if you take the time to look at the photos and read the captions.
while the Tikal Museum is rather poor, the Morley Museum, now located in a new research center built with Japanese funding, has some really amazing exhibits.
In every country / city I visit, I always try to go to the modern art museums.
The Museum has a wonderful collection of Guatemala*s modern art and the best Guatemalan painters, but during Febuary and March they have a Pop exhibition with international artists, among them is Andy Warlow with...
Museo Miraflores Guatemala City
Overall we enjoyed the green area around the museum, its a like hidden gem garden in this busy city!!
Nice and small museum with some artifacts of Guatemalan mayan history.
Great little museum with pottery from the area and very interesting visuals on the geological history of the area and the lake.
We had a wonderful lunch after the museum tour.
Lxkik Maya Museum Quetzaltenango
A great little museum in a very interesting building with an extremely knowledgeable guide.
A fascinating museum of all things Mayan, not just textiles, with expert guide.
Excellent museum about Guatemalan money
Free museum!
La azotea is a family run culture center divided into the coffee museum, mayatenanto and K'ojom for traditional costumes, music instruments, clothes etc.
Casa K'Ojom Antigua
We enjoyed the coffee and music museums, gift shop and watching the coffee bean drying process actively ongoing on this very well managed property.
Understated, yet first-class museum of music, typica clothing, and culture, Casa K'Ojom is on an actual working coffee plantation with its own Coffee Museum.
