It is interesting to refresh the living standards of the Mayan ancient culture, their hand crafts, plus a theater inside for special presentations and a cafeteria. It is exactly across the street from the international Convention Center.

It's right next to the Sheraton hotel. Not expensive. About an hour will do the whole thing. There are some nice pieces but overall not particularly impressive.

Through the exhibits here, you learn that El Salvador and its people are full of culture, education and experience -- that this is not just a third world country at the mercy of international aide. Its people are strong and capable.

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.

The museum was under construction and also part of it was blasting loud music for a private party. I'm pretty confused by what the overall intention is here.

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
