What served as an erstwhile prison and then an armory is now used as the National Historic Museum of Juan Santamaria. Detailing the life of a Costa Rican hero, the story of Santamaria is quite an interesting one. Giving up his life in a battle against a US citizen during his attempt to set up a slave trade at Costa Rica, the museum makes for a good visit if you’re in the area. The deeds of the hero and certain memorabilia and artifacts that played an important role in Costa Rica’s struggle for independence are all on display here.

From February to mid-December, every Thursday at noon, a musical concert is held at the museum, the admission to which is USD $2. There’s also a park dedicated to Juan Santamaria, complete with his statue and all, which is worth a little walk around it.
