Fodor's Review

The heroic deeds of Juan Santamaría are celebrated in this museum housed in the old jail, on the north side of Parque Central. It's worth a quick look if you have the time; Santamaría's story is an interesting one. A pleasant café inside is a great place to stop for a coffee. 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 late November.
