Synopsis

The Palenque Archaeological Site Museum opened in 1994, in a contemporary building constructed to replace the one inaugurated in 1957. Palenque is one of the most important Maya cities due to the great amount of information left carved on stelae. The collection includes archaeological findings like limestone relieves, stucco sculpture, funerary pottery and pieces of greenstone. There is a hall dedicated to the archeological research in the zone.
