Fodor's Review

Juan Santamaría's heroic deeds are celebrated in this museum housed in the old jail, one block north of Parque Central. It's worth a quick look if you have the time; Santamaría's story is an interesting one. Following the lead of the Teatro Nacional in San José, the museum holds a series of weekly concerts called Música al Mediodía ("Music at Noon") each Thursday from February to early December. Admission is $2.
