Casa K'inich is open Wednesday through Saturday and it's suggested you call first if you have a large group (Manuel is sub director 2651 4105 is the Museum's onsite telephone number). It is located at Fuerte Cabañas which has a spectacular view of the town from the towers. Great for afternoon photos. At present (June 2019) there is some repairing of ceramic on the floors in the corridors but it shouldn't affect your visit; please note that the museum is closed for lunch from noon through 1:30.

It is tri-lingual. English, Spanish, and Maya. All interactive displays teach you to say numbers, days of the week, months, etc. Very innovative low technology displays that are pretty cool. Nice view from up there as well.

The Children's Museum is open during Easter week (and beyond) 9 to noon and 1:30 until 5 Tuesday through Saturday we are closed on Sunday and Monday. This is the hourly schedule followed unless there is a big event that takes over the Fuerte Cabanas which blocks our entrance and you can not get in. Casa K'inich Museo Escolar HAS NOT BEEN CLOSED for 7 months as was relayed by the watchman. Have your hotel call ahead if unsure the local number is 2651 4105 which is a direct number to the museum. We apologize for any inconvenience to visitors who came during recent primary elections they did have us closed in March for political activities. We do encourage groups to call ahead. Thank you for visiting us.

They are no longer open at the listed in spite of having signs all over town. Had 2 very disappointed children. The guard says it's been at least 7 months that they open for large groups by appointment only.

Casa K'inich is now open to the public and for school visits. The interactive learning museum about the Maya Civilization and is a place to start before the Archaeological Site to familiarize yourself with this incredible civilization faced. Some information on where it is housed; Casa K'inich is in its permanent location inside Fuerte Cabañas which was a military fort built in 1946 during the time of General Carias Andino and was named in honor of General Jose Trinidad Cabanas (9 June 1805-8 January 1871) who was a central American hero and served as president of Honduras for two separate terms: March to July 1852 and again December 1853 until June 1855. The facility was used for military exercises and to patrol the western borders of Honduras. Fuerte Cabañas lay in ruins for over 20 years and in 2006 it was rebuilt and inaugurated in 2008. The building houses Casa K’inich Children’s Museum and is a popular site for visitors who climb the towers to get a view of the valley of Copán. Its current day use is for cultural activities, expositions and wedding receptions.
