Owner description: The Jade Museum and of precolumbian culture is positioned as an innovative state-of-the-art cultural proposal in the protection and conservation of archaeological heritage in Central America. Located in the center of Costa Rics's capital, the building was especially constructed to house the museum's collection, its architecture evoking a cut jade block. Its five levels exhibit objects crafted by artisans specialized in solving their daily subsistence needs, their spiritual and political world.

There is nothing like to learn about your predecessors and how things were done back in time. This museum is a magical trip to the past history not only of Costs Rica but for the entire Central America. You can learn a lot and feel more related with a place that has too much to tell

Don't visit as it is currently closed. It is relocating, and even the locals don't know that. We walked there only to find the sign posted. Wait until there is a new location with a phone number you can call to confirm.

Tried to visit in Feb 2014 but it is in the process of moving! Not much more to say than that. Fortunately it was a drop-in on our attraction tour and we didnt feel bad about not seeing it.

I would LIKE to say more, but despite a large sign on the imposing doors saying 'Open,' the facility was deserted on a Saturday in January, and the Guard on the Administrative side said the Museum adjacent is 'Closed,' and offered no additional information... Learned later at another museum that they are apparently moving the contents of the Jade Museum 'from one side of the building to the other.' ?! And the museum will be closed until sometime in March 2014. Rather odd.
