Yellow House Tours

Built using funds donated by Andrew Carnegie in 1912, Costa Rica’s Yellow House is a noteworthy (and noticeable!) building that houses the Central American Court of Justice. It has since been appropriated for use as a presidential home, a temporary facility for the Legislative Assembly and, most often, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cult.

Travelers can explore the grounds on their own or take a self-guided tour through one of San Jose’s most famous buildings. Once a week, local history experts offer official tours, which include a visit to the Museum Marques Manuel Maria Peralta, a gallery named after one of the country’s most important diplomats that is stationed on site. 

Practical Info

The Yellow House is located on 7th Avenue between 11 and 13 streets. It is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. Guided tours take place once a week by appointment.
