    There's not a whole lot to see, but the museum is worth 30-45 minutes for a quick primer on the country's civil war. There are a couple of informative timelines (with principal information translated ...  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.

    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.
