Located inside a large jewelry shop, the Mesoamerican Museum of Jade (Av. 16 de Septiembre at Calle 5 de Febrero, tel. 967/678-1121, www.eljade.com , noon–8 p.m. Mon.–Sat., noon–6 p.m. Sun., US$3) consists of a timeline of the major indigenous cultures of Mexico and their use of jade.
The highlights are the replicas of Maya masks and artifacts, including ones from Tikal , Copán , and the famous funerary mask of K’inich Janaab Pakal found in the Temple of the Inscriptions at Palenque .
At the end is a large, rather underwhelming reproduction of Pakal’s tomb. Signage is in Spanish only.
