Museo Príncipe Maya

Museo Príncipe Maya Review

A 10-minute walk from the plaza, this museum has a private collection of ancient Mayan artifacts recovered from El Petén, Alta Verapaz, and Quiché. Though the exhibit is relatively small, the variety of pieces is impressive. Known for its miniature Olmec quartz figurines, the museum also has fearsome masks, giant sacrificial pots, a reconstructed tomb, jade jewelry, and weapons.
