    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 special place to meet the legend of Kinich Pakal. Maya ruler at Palenque. This museum is the only one who has a replica of the Tomb that was found in Palenque from this ruling.

    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.

    Had a lot of good information but got boring. Keep in mind all the pieces are replicas.

    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.
