  • Excellent museum. So much to see and learn. Arranged in engaging ways, and good for all the family. Really great way to learn more about El Salvador. Nice gift shop too, with local crafts etc.
  • It's a great museum where you can learn a lot about El Salvador history. I accompanied my brother because he needed to do a research for a project he has for his university. We went with my sister and sister in law too. We had a great time and learned a lot, take some pictures, etc. Inside the museum there's a survenir store, really pricey for locals I guess but very nice for travelers. This could be a really great visit for tourists that want to know more about our small but beautiful country El Salvador. There's also a very good restaurante next to it where you can have a good time with your friends after the visit to the museum.
  • A great museum full of history of what is now Central America. Is a great way for local and international people to get to know the origins of El Salvador and how since the begging of time how the Pipil arts has influence up to this day the Salvadorian art culture. Is a place specially for local to trace back the indigenous roots and to be proud of them.
  • A museum worthy of a "not poor" but very exploited country.
  • Pretty nice to visit, actually. I enjoyed the architecture.
