    A good place to spend an hour or two. Its a pity that the small texts in every display are just in Spanish. A good translation to English would help.  more »

    If there is someone who says to know El Salvador if you haven't visited this museum does not know completely where summarizes the history of our country since prehistory, pre-Columbian, conquest, colony to the present day. Bello.

    It is small but tidy and may also visit an important part of the contemporary history of El Salvador. Like you need three hours to visit him calmly
