  • Definitely expected to see a museum more large, although it is interesting that the atmosphere and the history of the Jade do that mentally you lifts to the Mayan culture in the area of Palenque. Replica of a mask of King Pakal, is perhaps the most prominent. and some pieces that seem to be recent manufacturing crafts.

  • It is very interesting, there is a replica of King Pakal mask, very beautiful and also a replica of his tomb. There are a number of beautiful figures in jade, obsidian and sea shells. They charged a very economic input. It is highly advisable to visit

  • a small but elegant museum filled with remarkable pieces of maya and modern jade art. if you like jade this is an excellent choice to visit. many do not know that jade was a special stone for the maya and here one can see many pieces that show the reverence.
  • Wonderful place. There is a ship here also
  • Had a lot of good information but got boring. Keep in mind all the pieces are replicas.
  • Not much, boring, small
  • A very interesting Museum, features many replicas of Jade and an explanation of where to locate the original parts. It has a recreated Tomb, great place. At the end you can go to a jewelry store where the essentials would be buying something from Jade.
