Former airport, this is a colonial style building from the last century The Gold Room is really spectacular with a bas relief mural depiction of Costa Rican history since pre colonization times to the recent past. The permanent sculpture garden is evocative as well, though...More
The building was once the terminal of the main airport. It is a beautiful 1930's building and, on the first floor has the most stunning bronze murals covering the history of the country from prehistoric times until the arrival of the first aeroplane. There is...More
This is a small but very good museum but excellent in it´s collection. If you love art, then it is a must. It is conveniently located on the western side of the City. The building itself is the old San Jose airport, so it is...More
We visited this very small but beautiful museum on a Sunday afternoon and I am glad we stopped by. Entrance is free to the museum which has a lovely sculpture garden and several collections. The most impressive was the room entirely of wood carving.

It's for free. Do not expect a large museum, though, in case you are used to the large European museums. It's basically composed of a large main hall at the entrance, two small rooms at the North side, about a Southern room sectioned in three, two rooms at the Eastern side and a foyer looking West. Add to it, there's a beautiful room upstairs, reached through a lovely staircase and narrow passages that look over the main hall. Can be complicated if you suffer from fear to heights, but the view of the Waiting Room of the old airport is worth it.
