It’s a nice way to spend an hour in San Jose. The bottom floor has all the best exhibits
While we were there there was an art exhibit on the first sun level that was ok.
It’s worth a look in the old vault on the first level as well.
All the displays have English and Spanish writing and the videos are in English or with subtitles

It's an excellent option while in San Jose. In particular, during rainy days. This attraction is very affordable and will entertain you and your family for 3-5 hours. I've spent 5 hours in there, but you can make this attraction as long or as short as you want. However, it's a very interesting collection.

An excellent place to visit. Gives the history of the Costa Rican currency. Also it doubles up as an art gallery with some excellent pieces to view. Nit many things to see in San Jose but this is top of the list.
