This is a great museum. The guides were Guerillas in the war and have some incredible stories. Along with the monument, this place is very humbling. El Mozote should be visited by all travelers to El Salvador in the same way that Anne Franks house should be by anyone visiting the Netherlands or the Berlin wall by anyone visiting Germany.

The museum is both indoor and outdoor, featuring actual weapons and equipment used during the civil war, the experience of the tunnels that were dug to avoid bombs, destroyed aircraft, photos and narrative. Worth seeing.

A series of sheds tell the story about the civil war. Plenty of photos of those killed, and the weapons used . A radio studio had egg trays on the walls and ceiling for sound insulation which I thought worth copying.

Inserting and engaging historical displays of the civil war in this part of Wl Salvador. Members of the community may offer to help show one around, albeit the displays speak for themselves (if you wish such additional assistance, be prepared to tip -- otherwise be clear you are on your own and you may be relentlessly "shadowed," which can be...

Do not expect a huge and decent museum. But taking into account their limitations, it is faur enough. Please, talk with ex-guerrilleros that volunteer there to know more about the conflict and their lifes. This is the main plus of this museum

Four bumpy hours from San Salvador gets you to the center of the Revolucion Salvadorena. Photos, posters, and artifacts (including pieces of a former US ARMY helicopter) document what happened here. Most impressive is the radio station Radio Vinceremos 100.5FM, with on-site photos when it was in action

Perquin was hit hard during the war and has a proud histroy of resistance. The museum is rustic, but worthwhile. You need to speak Spanish to really appreciate it, so if you don't find a translator. The musuem is next to a small hike with and amazing view into Honduras. Both are excellent for the price.

Don't go with Smithsonian standards in mind but rather realizing this is history that is so fresh it will make you wonder what else is happening around the world that you aren't really paying attention to in the comforts of your home/Country. It is absolutely worth the visit but unless you can read and speak fluent Spanish I would highly... More

Although its tucked away in the mountains of Morazan and may not look like much from the outside, this museum is definitely worth going through if you want to hear about the civil war from the people who experienced it. The rooms were covered with pictures and artifacts from the war, and outside they have pieces of Monterrosa's helicopter and... More
