  • This is the National museum of El Salvador. Excellent place to find out about their roots, culture, traditions and history. Very nice, clean, and secure place to spend a quality time with your family. The entrance is only one dollar per person, parking included. Also, there's a nice coffee place and a souvenir shop waiting for you at the end.
