Fodor's Review

As in colonial times, the City Hall continues to serve as the seat of government. Today it also houses two museums, the Museo de Santiago (Museum of St. James) and Museo del Libro Antiguo (Museum of Antique Books). The former, which is housed in what was once the city jail, displays colonial art and artifacts; Central America's first printing press, dating from the late 17th century, is displayed in the latter, along with a collection of ancient manuscripts. Given the delicate nature of the collections in both museums, photography is forbidden.
