El Zapote Military Museum and Barracks

El Salvador’s civil war, fought between 1979 and 1992, looms large in the country’s consciousness, and the long-term effects of the conflict will be inescapably visible to visitors, who can learn much more about the history of the war at many historical and memorial sites around the country. One of them is this military museum, which, as is to be expected, elevates and explores the military’s role in the war. Objects on display include uniforms, weapons, and portraits of military leaders. With most of the information presented in Spanish, it is best to hire an English-speaking guide if you don’t speak Spanish.
