  • Had a great visit. Really varied and interesting exhibitions. A good way to learn more about the country's art, culture and history. Not super impressed by the shop and restaurant (would prefer something more family friendly) but the museum was excellent.
  • Smaller museum but worth the visit. Nice grounds, and changing displays of art.
  • Incredible. Fantastic collection of incredibly diverse arts. Make time, go take a tour.
  • Good place to see modern art in El Salvador and also good place for social & fashion events
  • Place suitable for the enjoyment of the belle arts
