How to Get There

The Pre-Columbian Gold Museum is located underneath the Plaza de la Cultura near Avenida Central and Calle 5 in the center of San José. Walking is one of the best ways to get around the compact city as traffic can get chaotic and parking can be difficult to find. Public buses are plentiful and inexpensive. Be aware that drivers don’t often speak Spanish and accept only local currency. The closest stops are Sabana Estadio and Barrio Luján, on opposing corners across from the theater.

When to Get There

The museum is open daily from morning until evening. Come early in the day to beat the crowds. Check the calendar for exhibits. Peak season in Costa Rica is from mid-December to April during the dry season. Come in March for the annual International Festival of the Arts when the capital city transforms into a giant stage with live concerts and festivities, organized by the National Theatre.

Exhibits now take a deeper look into the link between the past and the present, reflecting on the ramifications of migration, mining, metallurgical production, the ancestral and current worldview of indigenous people, the human relationship with nature, and the historical impact of the colonization and conquest.
