The "Museo Popol Vuh" houses the collection of Mr. and Mrs. Jorge Castillo, which was donated to the "Universidad Francisco Marroquín" (UFM). This is one of the largest collections of Mayan art, including important items representing "Arte Prehispánico" (Pre-Columbian Art) and "Arte Virreinal" (Colonial Art). The museum is named after "Popol Vuh", an impressive book written right after the Spanish conquest of Guatemala, narrating the history and the myths of the Mayan culture. If you are interested in visiting museums while in Ciudad de Guatemala, combine your visit of "Museo Popol Vuh" with the visit of "Museo Ixchel del Traje Indígena", that is also located at the "Centro Cultural de la Universidad Francisco Marroquín" in Zona 10. Enjoy!

It is a small archaeological museum worth a visit when in Guatemala. We had a guide who was passionate about her knowledge and that made exhibits and history of the country interesting.

The museum is a tribute the the Mayan belief system and the myth surrounding their beginnings. There is emphasis on the world above and the underworld.

This museum is very small but full of wonderful pieces. The signs are in Spanish and English and give a lot of information. Admission is 45 Q, and another fifteen for taking photos, which is unnecessary as no one checked me and I snapped away like mad. A little pricey for what it is. Same price for the textile museum in the same place. I didn’t do that one as there are no price reductions for seniors and it seemed like a lot to pay. Good video in the Popol about how they figured out the Mayan symbols.
