Museo de la Revolucion Salvadorena, Perquin

#4 of 12 in Museums in El Salvador
If you’re looking to absorb a little history, head out to Museo de la Revolucion Salvadorena to learn about the El Salvadoran wars. Though small in scale, the museum offers many artifacts and exhibits from the era to take in, showcasing the events that unfolded during the 12-year civil war. Most exhibits are only available in Spanish, so if you don’t know the language, a guide is highly recommended. Many guides fought in the war, so you'll hear valuable anecdotes about the guerrillas who lived and fought here.

    This is a very nice place, which for those of us who know a little of the history of El Salvador in the 80s went through a war in which much blood has been spilled. This site reminds us that wars do not let anything good.

    Inserting and engaging historical displays of the civil war in this part of Wl Salvador. Members of the community may offer to help show one around, albeit the displays speak for themselves (if you wish such additional assistance, be prepared to tip -- otherwise be clear you are on your own and you may be relentlessly "shadowed," which can be highly annoying). Behind the museum (for an additional $1), is a "guerrilla camp" with even more - and interesting - displays. So in reality, it's a combination affair: the museum and the guerrila camp.
