Most of the Costa Rica museums are mentioned in our walking tour at the beginning of this chapter or in the Creative Arts section. The Children's Museum is mentioned in the "Traveling with Kids" section in Chapter Three. A living museum is the Pueblo Antiguo, a theme park of Costa Rican history and cultural traditions at the Parque Nacional de Diversiones in La Uruca, two kilometers west of the Hospital México. The park re-creates the city at the turn of the 20th century, as well as a rural tocan and a coastal village.

Professional actors take you finto the past in the Viviendas Costarricenses tour (weekends from 10 a.m.), in which they trace the roots of Costa Rican traditions and democracy in ara entertaining one-hour presentation. Friday and Saturday nights from 6:30 to 9 p.m. you can enjoy a typical dinner and folkloric show, Noches Costarricenses, with a historical view of Costa Rican dance and music. Wheelchairs and baby strollers are available at the entrante. Kids will enjoy the amusement park are the same property. Proceeds from Pueblo Antiguo fund the local children's hospital.
