Synopsis

The Tonina Archaeological Site Museum, inagurated in 2000, was built based on the Maya cosmogony, represented in the Popol Vuh. The halls were designed to honor the ideas of the Maya people about the creation of the world. The relations between agriculture and astronomy, important dates and architecture, among others, are reflected here. The collection of limestone relieves and sculptures, stelae and ceramic items is remarkable. There is a reproduction of the stucco mural relief that represents the Prehispanic concept of the four ages of humankind.
