There is a lot to read but if you want to find out about the history and modern day El Salvador, you will learn a lot. The exhibition on immigration to the US is very informative. The English translation is quite poor sometimes.

The facilities were clean and neat. Very interesting to see the history as it unfolded or at least was discovered. My only complaint would be that as a non Spanish speaker that some of the signage was not also in English. I had a guide...More

Some of the dispays have Spanish only descriptions, but the majority now have English too. It's a great museum, fascinating stuff, well worth a visit. You can read more about it on our blog.

A temporary exhibit of photographs of women (by local photographers) was on display. Some galleries had bi-lingual sinage, but not all. The museum is architecturally interesting, with...More

Set in an attractive, modern building, the collection is relatively modest but worth seeing. More entertaining are the cultural events- movies, concerts, etc. Last Sunday pm we heard a delightful concert by a very accomplished youth orchestra and enjoyed it thoroughly.

El Salvador has very little vestiges of history left for all to learn and marvel to its rich past. With a minute budget and very little support this establishment makes its best effort to walk us back in time to the land of Cuscatlán, combined...More

Great space with some great exhibitions - the religion exhibition from pre Mayan to present day is fantastic. There was a small food market on the Sunday I was there as well. This would have to be one of the best Muse spaces since Mexico...More
