The museum is a wonderful compilation of photos and artifacts from the Civil War in El Salvador (officially 1980-1992). Our guide was a former combatant who shared stories of the revolution. There is no mistaking the part the US had in the deaths of thousands...More

The museum is both indoor and outdoor, featuring actual weapons and equipment used during the civil war, the experience of the tunnels that were dug to avoid bombs, destroyed aircraft, photos and narrative. Worth seeing.

Four bumpy hours from San Salvador gets you to the center of the Revolucion Salvadorena. Photos, posters, and artifacts (including pieces of a former US ARMY helicopter) document what happened here. Most impressive is the radio station Radio Vinceremos 100.5FM, with on-site photos when it...More

Perquin was hit hard during the war and has a proud histroy of resistance. The museum is rustic, but worthwhile. You need to speak Spanish to really appreciate it, so if you don't find a translator. The musuem is next to a small hike with...More
