This museum really exceeded my expectations. I am so glad we spent time in San Jose and visited a few of the museums. I really learned quite a bit about the culture of the region now. Visiting this museum gave me great appreciation for the...More

The two of us went today 8-9-18. As there is nothing open below the 2nd floor there was not much to see. A few coins and a bunch of old bills. We were there less than an hour and left disappointed. Not worth the admission...More
They were renovating. I was warned and should have listened. There was basically no pre Colombian gold, just a bank not exhibit.
Honestly pretty lame. There was some history to be learned but that was not the main purpose.

I rented a car when we were in San Jose...but Uber is perfect. There are many parking lots around the museum. In fact there is a very close one so that you just have to walk 100m and your there ...everywhere. Very safe walking around the area. and the cool thing is that all the main museums are close by. I bought all the tickets at once and I got discounts. I would also recommend eating at the snack bar inside the Jade Museum.
