  • This museum presents the Salvadoran history of art. Nice environment, easy access, a great place to visit.
  • This museum is split into 6 sections. One was closed during our visit. One of these was a temporary exhibit. Good chance to learn about the effect of the civil war on civilians and artists alike through art. Majority of information is in Spanish. Part of bigger complex including the theatre, gardens (pretty average) and a large memorial. Resturant on site, opens at midday. Museum entry was $1.5USD I think. Drinking water available to the right hand side of the reception desk (towards the toilets). No bags allowed in. Visited May 2016
