  • 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.

  • Our small tour group visited this little museum on the second day of our three day stop in El Salvador. I found it very informative for someone (me) who didn't know much of the revolution in Salvador....  more »

  • Great historical exhibitions. Well-curated, lots of great information.
  • 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.
  • 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.

  • To hear the story not told in our country, memories of our ancestors, I love your collection of old photos and especially its exhibitions of the peasant uprisings of 1932.
