  • Museo de Arte (San Salvador, El Salvador): This museum of rotating and permanent exhibits offers visitors an insightful, visual glimpse into the character of the country. Exceptionally interesting is the art of the country's civil war period. The museum also features the famous towering stone mosaic "Monument to the Revolution," which depicts a naked man whose outstretched arms are thought to symbolize freedom and liberty.
  • Museo de la Revolución Salvadoreña (Perquín, El Salvador): Rocket launchers, large chunks of a downed army helicopter, and the preserved studio of revolutionary Radio Venceremos are just some of the displays that bring to life the tumultuous events of the 1980s in the revolutionary stronghold of Perquín in the northeastern hills of El Salvador.
  • Museo Nacional de Antropología Dr. David J. Guzman (San Salvador, El Salvador): The ancient tools, weapons, pottery, and ceramic artifacts on exhibit here offer an intriguing glimpse into the lives of El Salvador's indigenous communities and explain the evolution of agriculture and early trade in the country.
  • Tin Marín Museo de los Niños (San Salvador, El Salvador): At this children's museum that's fun for the whole family, kids can fantasize about being a pilot in the cockpit of a Boeing 727 or lose their bearings in a crooked house known as the Casa de Graveded (Gravity House). Little ones can also dress up like doctors in a pretend operating room, put on plays in the theater, or walk inside a huge volcano (complete with lava and smoke).
