Museo Nacional de Costa Rica
Motherland

This room features a synthesis of the development Costa Rica has undergone throughout history since the arrival of the Spaniards until today.

In this area, you will get to know the time periods that have framed the building of our nation in its cultural diversity:  the Colony, the changes resulting from Independence, the coffee and banana plantations, the railroad and their contributions to society and economy, among other issues.

The exhibition displays photographs, drawings and representative objects from each time.  The latter were used in everyday life or remind of important political events.  Some of them are even symbols of ideals and traditions.  Others are samples of artistic creativity that captured time in wood and canvas.
