Originally the main terminal of San José’s first international airport, this museum houses the largest and most important collection of works by Costa Rican artists from the colonial time to go to the present. The museum’s permanent collection has over 6,000 pieces, including works by Juan Manuel Sánchez, Max Jiménez, Francisco “Paco” Zuñiga, Francisco Amighetti, Lola Fernández, and more. In the back patio—which used to lead to the tarmac—is a large and lovely sculpture garden. This museum is free, and anchors the eastern edge of the large La Sabana city park, making it easy to combine a visit here, with a stroll through the park.
