  • Tiny and very nice, museum visit is free and is housed in a French style building. It is pure history in the 20th century from the 20s to the 70s in which former President dies. Oil paintings and objects of his activity as a physician. For my worth.

  • 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.

  • It's a really interesting museum showing one the life of one of the most influential figures in Costa Rica's history. It's a short walk away from downtown San Jose with a lot of cafes and restaurants nearby.
  • History of the greatest president of Costa Rica.
  • Not too busy, nice exhibitions, pretty place, off the path.
  • A cultural heritage that almost nobody knows. These places so enriching information should be encouraged. There was one of the first doctors in our country.
