  • I liked it! I really wanted to learn more about the history of Costa Rica but nearly everything was in Spanish so I had difficulty understanding. Other than that, it's a beautiful place.

  • It's a very interesting place to learn about the history of 1856 war against William Walker. The Museum is small... the building itself is a historical site and the exhibitions are very well done and tell you the story from the Costarican point of view.

  • That was incredible experience I learning about the history of my country

  • this Museum seems to get better each time that I go there it gives a good view of the Alajuela history. The staff is friendly and very informative. I wish that there was more in English but I realize that this is a big job for a small Museum. If you're ever in Alajuela and get caught in the rain it is a good place to pass the time. They also have good clean restrooms.

  • Very good maintained, interesting and easy access.
