  • It is nice to admire the few architectural pieces in San Jose that stand out from the concrete mass. This is definitely one of them and we would have loved to take the tour if we had more time.  more »

  • Great place for history. English speaking guide was bit cocky.. Everytime you ask him question which is kind of reassuring the fact will come out "yes, exactly as I just explained" seems like he is discouraging us to ask any question .. The picture in the center hall roof is so amazing that it seem following you and rotates itself.. Makes me to give 3 star .. Everything else is average.
  • Beautiful architecture. Definitely do the tour, they run every hour. The tour guide was very informative about the history and architecture of the theater.
  • Old theater, palco seats very uncomfortable a big person doesn't fit at all. Bathrooms are OK. Restaurant expensive for the quality and the quantity. Important on recess don't by canned sodas security won't let you take into your seat only bottled water.
  • Very beautiful building and have a world class programme. Price from 9000 till 30000 colones. Discounts for students of 20%...
  • I was given the special opportunity to perform with the Pasadena Youth Symphony Orchestra as a Tuba player for the Teatro Nacionale. We were given private tours and I must say that the minute details and breathtaking paintings are astonishing. The history behind the architecture and founding of the theater are just as enhancing as the rest of the building.
