Museo de la Palabra y la ImágenThis museum, dedicated to the “rescue, investigation, preservation, and presentation” of El Salvador’s cultural and historical patrimony, with a particular emphasis on protecting the historical memory of the country’s indigenous communities. If that all sounds too heavy, give the museum a chance; its exhibits are excellent and offer a window into Salvadoran life and history that’s hard to access elsewhere.
