"Criminology Museum" San Jose Tip by trywillmc

San Jose, Costa Rica: 35 reviews and 68 photos


This museum is not for the faint of heart. Warning you may see things here that you may find offensive. The museum is located in San Jose, at the Supreme Court. My personal opinion is that this is one of the hardest museums to see in all Costa Rica, i tried several times to see it and it was usually closed and i could never get a definite time from staff members when it would be open. The last time i tried to vistit it was being renovated. This museum is one of the least advertised museums to my knowledge because of its shocking content. If you dont mind seeing body parts in phermeldahyde, i have rated this museum a must see.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
