  • 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.
