The Museum of Monteverde History has a primary focus on the North American Quakers who founded Monteverde in 1950. Besides the amazing collection of historic photos, visitors will see many exhibits and learn about the geological history that created the Central American isthmus and enabled the critical migrations of animals and humans between the two continents. The visitor also learns about the indigenous tribes that once lived here, and finally, the contribution of biologists, conservationists, and ecotourism to modern Monteverde.
