Palenque Museum

Recommended
The museum is an excellent complement to the site itself, particularly since the very fine objects are impressively displayed. Here you can get an idea of the famousPakal II tomb (Templo de las Inscripciones), reconstructed in a special room. Don't miss the ceramic censers from the Grupo de la Cruz, the jewellery, stucco heads and, above all, thetablets with hieroglyphs ( Tablero del Palacio ) and historical bas-reliefs (polychrome tablets from temple 19) featuring refined calligraphy and artwork.
