San José has many beautiful theatres, many with European-inspired architecture. These buildings serve as the city’s main tourist attractions; not only because of the architectural beauty, but because of the numerous cultural, musical, and artistic presentations and activities, which include traditional and modern Costa Rican and San José culture.
The National Auditorium of The Children’s Museum of Costa Rica (Museo de los Niños).
The National Theatre of Costa Rica and the Melico Salazar Theatre present drama, dance performances and concerts throughout the year. Nevertheless, other ‘smaller’ theatres can be found throughout the city and provide a large array of entertainment.
