I don't know how better to describe the Museo Nacional than to show you this diorama from the first hallway. The artifacts were beautiful, but the informational signs had something of the high school essay in them. Of course, we never made it to some of the newer galleries, since we progress through museum exhibits no faster than Costa Rica drifts away from Africa. Imagine us, contemplating the unexplained ancient volcanic stone spheres (Costa Rica's version of crop circles, I suppose), buffeted by the occasional tour bus wave. There we are, caught motionless on the home video of the middle-aged American who is running from spot to spot, taking 3 second still shots of each display case in sequence.

By the way, if you'd like your own trophy heads, you can find instructions here.
