An interesting museum on the history of the people of Honduras. Definitely helps if you speak Spanish. Had a nice young man as my guide who could speak some English. There are not a lot of exhibits but enough for me. The interactive media presentations were very good. Especially the little theater which had several videos on history (in Spanish). The one I saw on the creation story as found in the Copan ruins was really neat

I was disappointed to find all museums and government buildings closed due to the Covid Curse.
During the week, the main doors are open and you can peek in to see the foyer, but you cannot go inside. A security guard informed us that all museum sites were closed per government order.

One which I would describe as a combo museum of "history & art" (in a beautiful heritage-styled building of "some significant length" and which once was the National Palace as is inscribed all the way at the top), it's a museum which just when it comes to displays is "quite scanty" with actually pretty much just one main room on the 2 levels of that big building (& a few other quite smaller rooms). And as for the history portion, I would say it's scanty not just in the number of displays but also in the historical periods covered with mostly "only the pre-Columbian" as seen in the pottery artifacts (which take up most of that one big main room as mentioned) and the periods such as colonial & early republic just "barely touched" (only some historic photos & such although yes a fairly impressive "big carving scene" likely a depiction of the early republic beside a staircase between the 2 levels). As for the art portion (likely all "temporary exhibits" at the time), there were some interesting ones among the tiny-sized paintings (small enough to not see by just passing but to see only by looking at each one) along the corridors on the 2nd floor, and it was a nice browse of sketches of Tamayo (likely the country's celebrated artist) with his unique style or such of "colorful strokes" (one stroke on each sketch) in a room on the 1st floor. So overall, I would say it was a "cursory glance" of the country & its past at this museum (a bit similar to the experience at the similar palace in Nicaragua although "more colorful" displays in that one) and not kind of an "in-depth learning" about the country (as was the case at about 5 other national museums from Brazil to Mexico).

And nearby (in a "bustling part" of the city with plenty of narrow streets), within just about a 5-minute walk from this museum is the "downtown plaza" Parque Central with the city's "main cathedral" Catedral de San Miguel on one corner of the Plaza (to the left after coming out of here and straight to the other end of the "pedestrian street" lined with shops on both sides with its one end right after this building, and where to the left at about halfway of that street is Iglesia de los Dolores with a nice "souvenir market" close by); and also at about a 5-minute walk from this museum (also to the left after coming out but to the right at the end of the Building instead of going straight on the "pedestrian street") is the "old presidential residence" Antigua Casa Presidencial with not much of displays but a 2nd-floor outdoor area with some nice views around.

This wonderful museum in a beautiful historic building in the heart of Tegucigalpa is a must see for anyone visiting. The building alone is worth the visit, but be certain to spend some time in the inviting and informative expositions. And definitely stop by the gift shop on the way out... wonderful finds.

The museum is in the historic center of the city. Not enough to see unless you are an art aficionado. It's an in an historical building. The area is safe. Adjacent is a pedestrian shoping street. No need to go there for souvenirs. It's and
an easy walk from there to the cathedral and a central park. Good place to observe Honduran daily live.

I recommend this place for tourists in Tegucigalpa. The only problem is that is not a safe place but is a must in Tegucigalpa.

Went in here to learn more about local art and Mayan/indigenous art. Definitely worth a visit and if you time it right there is a video about Copán.

The museum is housed in a beautiful historic building and has done a great job at both restoration and maintenance. It is one of the few cultural centres that speaks the truth of both the best and worst of the history of this beautiful country. Request Ariel M. as your guide. He is a fountain of knowledge and a defender of truth and the best guide I have had in any museum I have ever been to.

Took my wife to the museum for Sunday morning stroll. Had a very pleasant trip through Honduras history and art. Some great local painters were on show plus an exhibit of Picasso’s drawings and a few paintings on loan.
They were also showing a new walk through computer exhibition with historical info on the country. Had some issues with the computers as they were just starting up but some fun anyway especially the Oculus VR glasses and a tour of Copan ruins.
We got a guide with our $5 entry per person and he was very knowledgeable about everything and spoke good English.
