  • Visited this small (one floor) museum for about an hour. $2/foreigners ($1/Salvadorans). Clean bathrooms. If you’re aware of the modern history of El Salvador you’ll likely appreciate the museum more ...  more »

  • Very good exhibitions, will learn important facts unknown in the country data. The only detail is that they should consider its expansion and present, more rooms.

  • Very well put together in chronological order to give you a deeper understanding of the causes behind the civil war. Very interesting exhibit on Rebel Radio in particular. The guide also seemed to really want to help to learn about Salvadorean history.
  • Interesting, illuminating, telling exhibits on recent El Salvadorian history. It was somewhat disappointing they do not recognize the student status of students from abroad and so charge them 200% of the entry price. All students should be be recognized regardless of their origin... Indeed, this is particularly ironic given that the museum is dedicated to discussing the problems of discrimination.
  • Great historical exhibitions. Well-curated, lots of great information.
  • This museum is an effort that is amazing for keeping alive the memory. Everything is very well documented and they have done a great job collecting objects and photographs from the war. Very much worth a visit this small museum and learn about a very important part of the history of El Salvador.
