Welcome to 
La Ruta Maya Foundation

 
La Ruta Maya Foundation is the only private organization in the region that seeks for -and aims to recover- archaeological objects that left the country illegally in past decades, with the purposes of repatriation to Guatemala. It also receives donations inside the country.  For that reason, it is responsible for the custody and management of more than 3,000 Pre-Columbian objects, duly registered at the Registro de Bienes Culturales (IDAEH) as National Cultural Heritage.
 
All the collection is available for research to scholars and students, and is shown to the general public in newspapers and newsletter publications, as well as through temporary exhibitions organized each year in Guatemala. Examples of the collection are on loan in credited museums in the country and are available for loan to foreign museums and international exhibitions.
