The museum tells an important side of the story, and they've done well with the limited resources they have. They have a nice collection of photographs of some of the major players in the insurgency, examples of the weaponry used, and other historical artifact. For another $1 you can tour the mock-up of the guerrilla camp - well worth the extra $1 and time.

Very good experience for any military and/or history enthusiast. Visiting the compound and touring the hidden radio stations and anti-aircraft entrenchments was a trip back in time. I bought the book “Un Niño Desnudando Injusticia Social” in their gift shop which was a very good read about the history of the civil war. The “cerro” hilltop was a must see with marked US bomb craters and a beautiful view of Honduras.

The museum is a wonderful compilation of photos and artifacts from the Civil War in El Salvador (officially 1980-1992). Our guide was a former combatant who shared stories of the revolution. There is no mistaking the part the US had in the deaths of thousands of civilians during the war. It's hard to believe how ignorant of this we in the US were at the time it was happening. The museum grounds contain an actual encampment, and across the street is a park that includes the mountain with the helipad. You can hike up to the top of the mountain, and the views are spectacular. The museum and grounds are well worth the trip and time!

This is a great museum. The guides were Guerillas in the war and have some incredible stories.

Along with the monument, this place is very humbling. El Mozote should be visited by all travelers to El Salvador in the same way that Anne Franks house should be by anyone visiting the Netherlands or the Berlin wall by anyone visiting Germany.

The museum is both indoor and outdoor, featuring actual weapons and equipment used during the civil war, the experience of the tunnels that were dug to avoid bombs, destroyed aircraft, photos and narrative. Worth seeing.

A series of sheds tell the story about the civil war. Plenty of photos of those killed, and the weapons used . A radio studio had egg trays on the walls and ceiling for sound insulation which I thought worth copying.

Inserting and engaging historical displays of the civil war in this part of Wl Salvador. Members of the community may offer to help show one around, albeit the displays speak for themselves (if you wish such additional assistance, be prepared to tip -- otherwise be clear you are on your own and you may be relentlessly "shadowed," which can be highly annoying). Behind the museum (for an additional $1), is a "guerrilla camp" with even more - and interesting - displays. So in reality, it's a combination affair: the museum and the guerrila camp.

Do not expect a huge and decent museum. But taking into account their limitations, it is faur enough. Please, talk with ex-guerrilleros that volunteer there to know more about the conflict and their lifes. This is the main plus of this museum

Four bumpy hours from San Salvador gets you to the center of the Revolucion Salvadorena. Photos, posters, and artifacts (including pieces of a former US ARMY helicopter) document what happened here. Most impressive is the radio station Radio Vinceremos 100.5FM, with on-site photos when it was in action
