This old building was the original airport terminal in San Jose, it now houses this art museum next to La Sabana Park. The two story building offers a nice collection of art work. It's not the greatest collection but the entrance is free, you can't beat that.
I saw some world class paintings and other art here that I might not have ever seen. It's a beautifully restored building with a nice sculpture garden. Must see.
We went here while on a tour, and we focused on the upper chamber where the history of Costa Rica was drawn on the walls, it was absouletly beautiful, and then a surprise on a necklace, it is a nice place to go and it wont take too long to go through it.
One of the biggest collections of art pieces of Costa Rica, many stored but a lot others in the walls and hallways of this emblematic building: the first International Airport of Costa Rica. In the middle of the green Sabana Metropolitan Park, you will find this little museum with a very wide collection of costarican artists, sculptors and more. As... 更多
This used to be the airport, which is pretty cool. The art is nice and nicely displayed. There is a wide variety, but it is not overwhelming.
This government-sponsored institution highlights works of Costa Rican art from many different styles and genres. Do not miss the mural of Costa Rican history upstairs in what used to be the VIP lounge when this was San Jose's airport terminal. The pleasant sculpture garden outside is also worth a look. You can take a bus from downtown (ask for Sabana... 更多
I did enjoy the 1 1/2 hour visit to this art facility. It is actually the renovated metro airport and is a beautiful building and grounds. If you have a little time to kill in San Jose, this is an excellent choice. I would have enjoyed just looking at the building without the art.
While we werent terribly impressed with the revolving art exhibit on display, the building itself is amazing. Originally built in the 1930's as the airport terminal, it closed for air service in 1955 and the building and airfield became Sabana Park. That said, its hard to think that a little town like San Jose would have the resources to create... 更多
In what was the original main terminal of San José’s first international airport, this museum houses an impressive collection of works by Costa Rican artists. Though a rather small museum, the permanent collection has more than 6,000 pieces, including works by Juan Manuel Sánchez, Max Jiménez, Francisco “Paco” Zuñiga, and Lola Fernández. The back patio (formerly the tarmac) has a... 更多
Yes it used to be the old airport. The art was very interesting as well as the signs placed around telling you about the old airport and things that were left. The communications tower is still in tact and you can also walk out the back and check ot the sculptures in the garden. Can bring a picnic lunch and... 更多
