Nice, small art museum with rotating exhibits (mostly modern it seems) and a small permanent collection downstairs. The modern collection has some odd items. The museum was free when we went but I wouldn’t mind paying a small fee so they could repair the outside tile mural and maintain the grounds and perhaps expand. You need no more than an hour to visit.

We enjoyed a terrific tour of the Museum of Art in San Salvador with the best tour guide you could ask for. The past Minister of Rural and Urban Development, Kiko Alfaro took us to see Joan Miro's exhibition at the museum. Dr. Alfaro was most recently a professor of Art History at a prestigious University in El Salvador and working a full shift at 80 years young. His has since passed away. We were his guests for a week and his insight into the art scene was irreplaceable. He studies architecture in Italy and one of his professors was Pablo Picasso. What an experience.

My family and I enjoyed the museum. Too bad it was 30 minutes before closing! From what I got to view, it was a diverse selection of modern art and traditional. Highly recommend it! I think the fee was one dollar per person.

How one likes art is personal, and this place didn't do much for me. There is no English which makes it hard for non-Spanish speakers to follow. $1.50 entrance fee. An hour or less will do it. Some of the pieces are not displayed or lit well.

Not a huge place, but it definitely has some great works. It's always great to see more of the history and experiences of the people of El Salvador. I'd recommend visiting if you get a chance!

They had a great exhibit of local artists as well as an amazing Dali exhibit on Dante! Reaonably priced. The information was all in Spanish, but even with limit language skills we could understand much of the written info. Can't recall the exact price but not expensive at all, a few dollars.

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.

El Salvador has been known for its excellence in the production of coffee beans, later known in the newspapers for its horrific civil war, now also positions itself in the art world!
The museum has a lot of artwork but unfortunately, all the descriptions are available only in Spanish. The souvenir shop is very small and we did not find any interpretations of the paintings such as postcards or magnets.

The museum has a restaurant that you may want to try. Different ambiance than the typical restaurant in the area. Quiet and well appointed, great service, good for dinning or for a sit down coffee.
