Western Honduras Sights

Museo Regional de Arqueología Maya

Fodor's Review

Although most visitors come here to see the astounding Mayan ruins east of town, you can also learn a bit about that culture at the Museo Regional de Arqueología Maya. Though most of this charming little museum's descriptions are in Spanish, the ancient tools and artworks speak for themselves. The exhibit on el brujo (the witch) is especially striking, displaying the skeleton and religious artifacts of a Mayan shaman.
