I went to the Carlos Museum several years ago and have been meaning to make time to go back ever since. The museum, though small, has an extensive collection and is reasonably priced for a great afternoon of exploring history and ancient artifacts.

Although small, it takes about 2 hours to go thru this museum. Some of the descriptions are hard to read due to lighting and placement of small print. Otherwise, a quality experience!

Took a friend who has never been here, we had so much fun learning new things about different cultures of centuries ago. Beautifully presented, easy to walk around and parking not a problem. I had no problem finding the museum. I can't wait to go again. Highly recommened. Had a delicious lunch too.

large collection of art from the Americas, particularly from South American and the Andes. The ancient Costa Rican ceramics are beautifully displayed, and the showcases are well lighted.
