This was a well crafted museum. Nice flow from execution to exhibition. It had a very diverse mix of messages and different nationalities represented. Loved it

Very insightful into El Salvador's history and contemporary culture. Many themes of indigenous rights, liberation, protest, violence and just some great art. I would have taken more away if my Spanish were stronger. Worth the trip.

$1.50 for adults, free on Sundays! Very near the Sheraton Hotel and Guzman Anthropolgy Museum. Interesting permanent and temporary exhibits. We spent about 45 minutes here. Gift shop off lobby has nice women’s blouses! Clean bathrooms.

My 7 year old grandson and I went to the museum one morning last week. The exhibits were really nice. I know I should be able to read Spanish but even a short explanation in English would have been appreciated.

Apparently, Sundays are free entry - but no one else seemed to be there when I arrived. I basically had the museum all to myself for an hour! The special exhibits were still in set-up, so the collection I could see was more limited, but...More

IF you have 90 minutes and want to see an eclectic collection of Central American art, you've found the right place to go. The permanent and temporary exhibitions tell a compelling story of El Salvador's history with emphasis on the civi conflict and post war...More
