  • I loved the place only once I had gone, years ago and now that I am older and I like the culture and history did not want to go out, in Europe I paid E20.00 for museums and here only 3 scars was great.

  • The museum has a restaurant that you may want to try. Different ambiance than the typical restaurant in the area. Quiet and well appointed, great service, good for dinning or for a sit down coffee.  more »

  • Good space but needs more content. There are a couple of nice paintings. There one room full of junk that literally looks like piles of rubbish, exhibited for longer than one year, surely there must be some artists who would like to exhibit in that room.
  • Amazing museum. World class art and curation. Don't miss it during your visit to El Salvador! Tickets are only $1.50, $0.50 if you're student and free on Sundays so there's no excuse. The only downside was the gift shop that had no museum merchandise nor specialized art books. Hopefully it'll get better in the future.
