There are two museums inside the Tikal National Park; the
Stelae museum and the Sylvannus G. Morley Museum.
Sylvannus G. Morley Museum
The Sylvannus G. Morley museum is situated to your left as
you face the entrance to the site.
Here you will be able to find a reconstruction of the tomb
and burial goods of Ha Sawa Chaan K’awil one of the great builders of Tikal.
Replica of the jade found in the tomb can also be seen here (the original can
be found in the National Museum, Guatemala City)
The Stelae Museum was a project to rescue important stelae from the natural elements. You'll
also find there a reproduction of one of Tikal's most famous images, the bound captive. A powerful warrior,
standing, seen in profile, he looks down with chagrin to his bound wrists.
