  • The Museum of art of El Salvador, Mars, is located at the end of the street the revolution, steps away from the Sheraton Presidente Hotel, in the heart of the Colonia San Benito. The exhibition area consists of 1.208 metres distributed in five rooms. Three of them are destined to permanent samples of Salvadoran art (Great Hall, Hall 3 and Hall 4), and the remaining two are used for temporary exhibitions, as well as some spaces for several samples. Salvadoran art exhibit offers a historical tour and the impact of the evolution suffered by art according to the situation and the circumstances of the country. A chronological approach that helps to understand and learn about the development of the Salvadoran art. Recognized and renowned artists and painters in an excellent sample. Among the temporary exhibitions, it is worth emphasising photographic exhibition, "objective Mordzinski, a journey to the heart of American literature". The most outstanding writers of Hispano-American literature captured by the lens of the Argentine photographer Daniel Mordzinski. A wonderful exhibition that has toured the world, and to which is worthwhile to devote time and attention. Also leading the line of time, life and work of the remarkable Salvadoran painter Julia Díaz. The Mars Museum, a must-see for foreign and local visitors who appreciate art and history. Ample parking, spotless bathrooms and easy access for people in wheelchairs. Also available wheelchairs at the entrance. Open from Tuesday to Sunday from 10.00 a.m. to 6 p.m. entry general $1.50 students $0.59 adults majors and minors of 12 years, entry free free entry Sunday to general public suggest a more frequent cleaning of soils, that for some reason, powderings with ease.

  • 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
  • A lot to see here!
  • Very good place

  • A good choice of Museum to appreciate the art of the country but was very good to give the opportunity to emerging artists, who are mostly young people with great talent.
