Housed in a single room, there are pictures and displays covering every detail of the dreadful earthquake in 1944. There is a clever simulator to show how an earthquake feels. Free of charge.

It is a great place to learn how San Juan looked like before the earthquake that devastated the city in 1945. There is an earthquake simulator. It is worth visiting.
