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.

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
