The initiative brings together historical, patriotic and cultural contents that, through images, allow to commemorate and rescue historical values and identity of being Costa Rican.
The revision of the material was in charge of the National Archive and the Center for Artistic and Cultural Production of the Ministry of Culture and Youth. “The documents in the exhibition are of different kinds: textual, posters, maps and plans, photographs, informative material in a small format, and also sound and audiovisual documents and are of incalculable value since they constitute fundamental elements of the national memory”, said Alejandra Chavarría Alvarado, a professional from the Historical Archives Department.
The exhibition hours are from 9:00 a.m. at 5:00 p.m.
