The Quauhquechollan is hard to find. It is on level one of the Museo Popol Vuh. People kept directing us to Popol Vuh or telling us we were in the wrong place. Find it, it is so worth a visit. This museum tells the story of the conquest of Guatemala as told through a Mayan drawing of the conquest done at the time of the conquest. It is called Quauhquechollan. That was the name of the Mexican town that joined with Conquistador Jorge Alvarado to conquer the Mayan in present day Guatemala. A dozen Individual videos break down the huge drawing and tell the story. The videos are available in 7 languages. 35q per person.

This Museum belongs to the University Francisco Marroquin and it shows the conquest of Guatemala by the Spanish Conquistadors with the help of the Mayans that they has conquered. It is beautifully display with videos of every part of the cloth in which the Conquest is painted, and you get a wonderful description of how it was accomplished. A must to see in Guatemala City

This is a beautiful museum, so well done and you get to see the lienzo, that discribes the conquest of Guatemala by Pedro de Alvarado and how his brother with the help of the native indians conquered Guatemala. It is so well explain and each piece of the map has a video that descibes all the conquest. They also have a wonderful book that you can buy with the Quauhquechollan description. Next door you have the Popol Vuh Museum, that has beautiful pre-columbian pieces and in front the Museo Ixchel which is the native costume museum. All are a must to see The three Museums are in the University Francisco Marroquin Campus

During my visit of Popol Vuh Museo and National Museum of Archeology and Ethnology (both are located at the Francisco Marroquin University), the staff informed me that this museum is closed and is no longer accessible to visitors. They did not know the reason for the closing. Take note of this when planning your visits to the museums in Guate.

Located within the UFM campus this multimedia tour spells out a fascinating trip in colonial history, detailing the wars and journey as the conquistadors conquer Central America. It really brings alive each segment of this giant map, detailing each individual battle and the tales/struggles behind it. Despite the fact that no one else was there when we visited they were happy to turn everything on and let us walk around at our own pace. Staff also speak English too so conversed in both languages. Don't miss the other museums on the campus which also are some of the best in Guatemala City.
