The Museum of Military History opened this week in San Franciso, Honduras. Its collections contain the history of the Armed Forces and includes documents and weapons from the past through present day.
The San Franciso area is located in the center of Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras.
The work on the museum cost 14 million Lempiras, and began back in 2008. Honduran soldiers carried out the labor, with supervision by experts.
The building was restored with the collaboration of the Honduran Institute of Anthropology and History (IHAH), with funding from the Taiwanese government.
General Carlos Cuéllar, head of the Joint Chiefs of the Armed Forces, said the museum will be open to the general public during regular hours at the end of January. The Museum admission will be 10 lempiras for students, and 20 lempiras for individuals; it will be open to the public from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm.
