I loved it, what an incredible learning experience. The city of the poets, that is how you will remember this town, this is where the poetry was born in Costa Rica, and it is a beautiful small museum. Learn about their people, their coffee, their history. Learn about the peaceful and beautiful energy of Costa Rica

This museum, across the street from the park, deserves a quick visit of 15-20 minutes if you are in San Ramon and interested in natural history. Its two small rooms have models and a few fossils of the enormous sloths found in the area about 12,000 years ago. The visual image of seeing them (rather than reading about 4 ton... More

Lots of historic information. Worth a visit if your going to spend time in San Ramon. They have live music on a regular schedule, jazz, blues as well as Tico marimba and other Latin music.

Not much to see beyond the Giant Sloth. We had a few minutes so decided to swing through. Don't make a special trip.

We made a quick trip to the museum just to see the model of the giant Prehistoric sloth. It was created based on bones found in the San Ramon area. Pretty neat! The museum has musicians in the courtyard when we were there. That added to the atmosphere. I agree that it's not worth a trip to San Ramon just... More

I live in San Ramon so this museum is just down the street. If I was in San Jose I'd just stick to museums there as this is still in development and more of a recreation center in its current state. There are a few rooms of exhibits and classes are available daily for craft activities. It's near the park... More

It's a beatiful building across from the park with friendly staff. There's no admission fee which seems fare as there is not a lot going on. They do have a nice statue of a giant prehistoric sloth, much different light than our current cute little friends. The courtyard is nice. However, they seem to be in a growing phase and... More

It has the barest essentials at this point, but occasionally they do have nice displays. The management are very nice. They are working to improve it.

the building is lovely, there was a nice exhibit of wood sculptures but not too much else to see. Lovely interior courtyard. You can do the whole thing in 20minutes. If you are in San Ramon, definitely see it, but don't make a trip for it.
