Museum Tikal / Museum Cerámico - Museum - Guatemala

Situated right behind the park ticket stand, the entrance of Museum Cerámico is flanked by beautiful orchids and thick plants. It has more exhibits of valuable items discovered in the temple’s tombs than Museum Lítico. Ceramics, jade, inscribed bones and shells found buried in tombs are exceptionally exquisite, and were deemed as highly valuable objects by the Mayans. Also found here are precious items buried in the tomb of King Ah-Cacau under Temple I. Photography is also not allowed.
