National Museum of Costa Rica in Costa Rica

Great way to learn about the history of Costa Rica at your own pace.

The displays are excellent and it is really interesting to read about this history of Costa Rica in such detail.

And the building itself and grounds are an adventure too.

The history of the jail is in a separate basement level and a children's ecology exhibit is in its own building as well.

Almost all information is in both Spanish and English.
