Jade Museum
The Museo del Jade y de La Cultura Precolombina by the Instituto Nacional de Seguros (INS), located in the center of the Costa Rican capital, offers the public visiting its permanent exhibits the opportunity to observe all of its archaeological heritage collection. Located near Plaza de la Democracia and integrated to the museums and cultural ensemble of San José, it shares, along with the neighboring museums, a common objective: to make the pre-Columbian heritage of Costa Rica known to both national and foreign tourists. The modern building where the Museum is located gives the chance to recover public spaces and establish itself as a cultural destination at a local and international level. When you visit the Museum you will enter modern exhibition galleries built under the "immersive museography" concept, which incorporates floors, walls and ceilings in a way that viewers perceive themselves in an "exceptional" and novel space out of everyday life. The Museum, as part of a scientific-museographic and architectural proposal, was conceived as an educational and cultural space and an ideal complement to non-formal learning for all the different Museum´s visitors.  It also allows for approaching the object of study from different thematic perspectives, using different didactic strategies ranging from traditional written and graphical information on the walls, manual and digital interactive devices, projections, three-dimensional environments, audio stations with specific information, audio guides and text adaptation into Braille language.
