This absolutely brilliant new museum opened in 2006 in the former Palace of Ministries. It features some surprisingly big-name art exhibitions from around Latin America and also displays the history of the country from its Pre-Columbian beginnings to modern times via charts, photos, documents, scale models, art, and intriguing artifacts like the femur and tibia of a giant sloth. Their latest addition is Virtual Copán, an animated film showing four times a day, that takes you through a virtual tour of the Maya ruins and explains how they were built. It's a great introduction to the ruins if you haven't been there already.
