What people are saying:

Embark on the train to the Mayan civilization-Bao Po House Museum Address: 6 Calle At 6 Av. | Zona 10, Guatemala City 01010, Guatemala Opening hours: Monday to Friday from 9 am to 5 pm. Monday to Friday, 9 am-5 pm, Saturday 9 am-1 pm I took a taxi from where we live and arrived at the Baopowu Museum. It is very easy to find next to a university. The entire museum The design is very simple. There is a large lawn in front of the big brown house, which is very suitable for taking photos. We can see many people lying directly on the lawn and resting very comfortably. We walked along the steps to the museum. The official venue was on the third floor, and an elevator was needed. On the corridor that officially enters the venue, there are many introductions about Maya civilization. Walking inside step by step, it seems to embark on a train that coincides with the Maya civilization era. There are many exhibits in the museum, and the difference between this museum and other museums is that I think it is very delicate and neat, which gives me a great visual enjoyment. Each exhibit will have a historical introduction next to it. , Very interesting. The inside was quite large. We were shocked while strolling around (for the Maya civilization). There were a lot of earthen utensils of the time. They were very delicate and allowed us to take photos. This is quite humane.

    A modern archaeology museum

    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.
