  • This is a simple Museum, but with very good facilities, modern building with shop and cafeteria. It is possible to monitor the historical evolution of human settlement in El Salvador and, in one of the wards, the curious relationship of the Central American people with death. I was also in a photographic exhibition that showed the people of the country, one of the nicest I have ever met.

  • A place that offers good exposure of Mayan ceramics. It is small when compared with other museums such as the anthropology of CDMX, but it offers good archaeological material, 100% recommended.
