Preserve, conserve and exhibit its collections of pre-Columbian art objects, the ethnographic and other Costa Rican art expressions as part of our Cultural Heritage.
Institute the main pillars forming the philosophical framework of the Jade Museum’s operation:
Sensibility and respect for cultural expressions
Satisfy and if possible, exceed the expectations of visitors, promoting a unique sensory experience in each visit.
Raise awareness of the collections exhibited, didactically and with scientific and artistic assessment.
Disseminate Costa Rican culture in general, using complementary didactic means like cycles of lectures, informal discussions, video projections, digital media, posters, books, catalogues and others.
Create consciousness of the value the people’s cultural heritage has, by getting the country’s educational domains interested, so the process starts since early basic general education.
Offer the public permanent and temporary exhibitions, varying the subjects exposed so the Museum has a dynamic character.
Produce itinerant exhibitions at national and international level, to disseminate the huge richness of our cultural legacy.
