Museo de Arte de El Salvador Reviews
Small but rich in culture. We enjoyed the galleries and exhibitions. The entrance fee was less than $3.00 which covered the entire museum. There is a restaurant in the premises as well, can't comment ... more »

Good space but needs more content. There are a couple of nice paintings. There one room full of junk that literally looks like piles of rubbish, exhibited for longer than one year, surely there must be some artists who would like to exhibit in that room.
Amazing museum. World class art and curation. Don't miss it during your visit to El Salvador! Tickets are only $1.50, $0.50 if you're student and free on Sundays so there's no excuse. The only downside was the gift shop that had no museum merchandise nor specialized art books. Hopefully it'll get better in the future.
