Museum of Art of El Salvador (MARTE)

A tour of a large part of El Salvador's art history.

At the end of Avenida de la Revolución, behind the the modern Monument to the Revolution, the private but not-for-profit MARTE in its relatively short life (inaugurated in 2003) has arguably become the city's most significant museum. It covers the mid-19th century through the contemporary period (especially strong in 20th-century art), with temporary exhibitions bringing in international works, sometimes including blockbuster names like Rembrandt and Picasso. The museum is not huge - it should take no more than an hour or two - but it's a wonderful showcase for some of the fine-art talent that doesn't get a lot of attention beyond these borders.
