“Small but cheap”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013 via mobile

Entrance to the art collection is only $1.50 but the art inside is interesting. When I was there a pop art insulation was presented and 3d glasses were provided which made my visit different to another other art museum I have visited. It is however small so don't plan to spend an entire morning there.

“Small, but great collection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

I had the museum to myself on the day of my visit, something that may be a turnoff to some, but loved by me as I had a personal visit with the art. The museum is small and only took me a little more than an hour to pass through, but it was well worth it. With a mixture of photography, painting, sculpture, film, and mixed media, there is something for everyone. It is traditional as well as edgy and the quiet, clean atmosphere is the perfect environment in which to appreciate it all.

“Nice, but limited, collection”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Some nice sculptures out front, nicely presented collections. Based upon our guidebook we were expecting more, especially the art from the wartime years. Nothing wrong with a visit here, just nothing too special. Probably spent less than an hour.

“If you are at all interested in art, go there!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

We are members of the North American Reciprocal Museum program (NARM), so got in free. However, entrance fees are very low. This is a surprisingly (given the poverty in El Salvador) good museum, with a large collection of almost entirely Salvadoran artworks.
