Head to Sculpture Museum and surround yourself with the ancient Mayan sculptures and architecture of Copan. The museum houses some of the best original and replica pieces representing Mayan culture. Enter the museum through a dramatic tunnel, which helps you feel like an archaeologist exploring an underground site. Inside, you can inspect over 60 different exhibits, 3,000 sculptures, six restored buildings, and some of the most important stone carvings from the site. The vibrant Rosalila structure stands as the museum’s centerpiece, a wonderful replica and a superb example of Mayan decorative styles. Put Sculpture Museum and other Copan Ruinas attractions into our Copan Ruinas trip builder site, and watch your holiday take shape.
