  • You have to stop by here if you’re visiting San Salvador. Great museum, very socially educational and provides some really authentic beautiful art from the people of El Salvador and other Latin American/Spanish artists. Love coming here every time I’m in ES and I’m never disappointed! It’s also free on Sunday. ❤️🇸🇻
  • This one of the best museums of art I've seen in Central America As of the day I'm writing this review there are currently 3 exhibitions, one of modern art (Bienal d Dibujo), one of the life of a Chinese immigrant, which in and of itself is a beautiful story of cultural differences; and a cultural exhibition of societal conflict and turmoil that plagued the country in the past century, along side it shows it's rich history and hidden talent that lies in this small Central American country It's a must visit if you're in the city, you'll get to know a bit more of the history of this beautiful country Entrance is 1.50$ (free on Sundays)
