Museo de Paleontología, Arqueología y Geología Ingeniero Roberto Woolfolk Saravia

Museum in El Oriente

This small, out-of-the-way museum is filled with prehistoric skeletons – some reconstructed and rather menacing-looking. Most of the bones of three giant creatures are here, including those of a huge ground sloth some 30,000 years old and a prehistoric whale.

Other exhibits include early Maya artifacts. To find the museum, go west from the highway directly through the town for 1km, following the small blue signs pointing to the museo.
