Museo Mesoamericano del Jade - Museum Antigua - Guatemala

Just two blocks east of Parque Central, this compact museum displays replicas of some of the most significant jade artifacts ever found, with detailed explanations in English and Spanish of what these objects represent and what they were probably used for. The museum is located within the same building as La Casa del Jade, which sells beautiful artifacts made of jade, gold and silver. You can also take a guided tour of the factory in the back room. The factory tour and museum are both free, and it should only take about a half hour to do both.
