National Museum of Anthropology (Museo Nacional de Antropología) Tours

Opened back in 1883, the National Museum of Anthropology is a fascinating stop for understanding the history of El Salvador and its people. Spread out over five different halls, it holds the treasures and ancient artifacts of pre-Columbian settlers, from the Maya and Olemec to Pipil tribes who inhabited the jungles and coasts. The halls are separated into five different categories, from agriculture and human settlements to religion, arts, and trade. See how native Salvadoran people once farmed and worshipped their gods, including an ancient altar of stone and petroglyphs carved into rocks. If you plan on purchasing local crafts when venturing outside the capital, this is a good spot to learn the facts behind traditional Salvadoran crafts, and gain an idea of what to look for when shopping in local villages. Arguably El Salvador’s most popular museum, the National Museum of Anthropology is a must for travelers in the city.

Practical Info

All museum exhibits are in Spanish, though museum guides who speak some English are available free of charge.  When speaking with locals, the museum is also known as “Museo de David J Guzman,” an influential Salvadoran scientist who died in the 1920s.
