The Sabanero Regional Museum honors an almost legendary character that marked much of the Guanacaste culture, that’s why its rooms show items and tools used by the “Sabaneros” (plainsmen) to perform the tasks of the field.
The museum is located in the Culture House, a beautiful building that in 1989 was declared of Architectural Interest by Executive Decree 18896-C. The place is colonial style, with a construction of wood, mud and covered with tile. In fact, the museum is part of the old sector of the city and is a milestone in Liberia.
