This is a scale model of Copan Ruins in Honduras... ...and this is one of the larger pyramids at Copan. When archaeologists dug a tunnel to find out what was inside, they found that the pyramid had been built over a previous temple... ...called the Rosalia temple. It would have looked like this. Or you can pay $15 extra and crawl into the tunnel to hardly see a bit of it through thick glass. ...and they built a full-size replica in the museum This is the 'hieroglyphic stairway'...
