about THE MUSEUM

The Costa Rican Art Museum (MAC) leads the main activities related to the plastic arts of Costa Rica; It gathers and exhibits works by national and international artists, stimulates plastic confrontation and critical thinking and contributes to the integral formation of the public that visits it through educational and recreational programs. The MAC has more than six thousand works in its collection that includes painting, sculpture, photography and other national and international artists, dating from the mid-19th century to the beginning of the 21st century. The Museum also carries out extension programs through traveling exhibitions and exhibitions with international projection. These actions have allowed MAC to position itself in the Costa Rican environment and abroad with an updated and contemporary vision. Visiting the Museum of Costa Rican Art is an enriching experience where you can discover works of great aesthetic and heritage value that reflect different eras and artistic movements that have left their mark on Costa Rican art. In addition, the building that houses the MAC is a work of art alone that is worth admiring. It is a neocolonial style property, which was built in the late 30s and was the first international airport in Costa Rica.
