  • Museum located in one of the most emblematic neighbourhoods of the city, Barrio Escalante; It is located in the former home of the former President and is unavailable for being a museum very careful presenting a collection about the doctor and always having exhibitions of the first order. The House is interesting.

  • Much history and working exhibits. Admission is free and you can read the information boards only in Spanish. a short visit is worthwhile but determined.

  • A museum that is traversed in a short time but that holds memories of historical events important to Costa Rica, the rooms very well distributed and all objects properly labeled with information sufficient and appropriate, not to mention cleaning the place and the good treatment of the staff that we encountered at the site

  • Not too busy, nice exhibitions, pretty place, off the path.
  • The permanent exhibition is boring, but the storms are always very well selected, so seek quality.
