  • Museums in San Jose Costa Rica
    exhibit includes information on coins as well as interesting samples The other museum is the Museo de Jade or the Jade Museum It s located in the INS building in downtown in the National Insurance building The amazing quantities and the quality of the jade in the country can only be attributed to trade since the country lacks jade mines The exhibit in this museum is the largest American jade collection in the world The collection is extremely valuable because of the rarity of the mineral and of the religious and historical significance that it has for the Indian population and for the Costa Ricans in general Like the golden pieces the jade artifacts also depict animal shapes The national museum or Museo Nacional is located in an old fort which was marked by bullet holes during the 1948 Civil War The archaeological room offers several Aboriginal artifacts made of stone and clay like pottery The colonial room presents facts about the conquest and also some examples of religious art brought by the Spaniards If you are an art lover there are two museums that you won t want to miss The Museo de Arte Costarricense is located in the Sabana urban park in a beautiful building that was the old international airport The gorgeous architecture of the building doesn t detract from the fine paintings and sculptures that are on exhibit Some of the finest Costa Rican art is present in this collection The Museo de arte contemporaneo contemporary art is located in what used to be the National Liquor factory This sounds very strange but believe me the once industrial place has turned into a very artistic and graceful set of buildings and surrounding grounds Some exhibits vary all the time and the small and medium sized auditoriums
