Chorotega Arts & Crafts, Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve

#3 of 6 in Museums in Monteverde
The Monteverde Chorotega Arts & Crafts museum is part of Historica Monteverde Museum. The history of the Monteverde Community is shared with visitors from around the world on a daily basis. The Chorotega Tribe has used ancient environmentally friendly techniques to create outstanding master pieces for over 4,000 years. These unique and beautiful creations are made on location right at this museum for everyone to see and learn about the Chorotegas. Visitors may join a hands on activity in the middle of the Monteverde cloud forest community, founded by Quakers from Fairhope, Alabama, on April 19th, 1951.

Learn, watch and create your own master piece using Chorotega style techniques with Marcelo Oliveira, the expert behind this small museum.

Time travel is possible and family friendly right here at Historica Monteverde Museum when you visit the Chorotega Arts & Craft exhibit and experience art inspired by nature in a very "old" fashion way.
