Local Activities

You are very welcomed to join our weekly meetings, every Saturday at 3PM (local time) in the premises of the National Museum of Anthropology (MUNA) in San Salvador.   The meetings are characterized by the informal exchange of material and information between our members.

MUNA is located at Avenida Revolución, Col. San Benito, in front of the Centro Internacional de Ferias y Convenciones (CIFCO).  It is the largest museum in El Salvador, with a history of more than 100 years and has an extensive collection of Pre-Columbian artifacts and ethnographic material.  The Salvadorian philatelic gallery is also part of the museum.

Auctions. We hold at least one auction during the year, giving our members the opportunity to buy rare stamps, covers, etc.

EXFILNA.  Occasionally, we organize the National Philatelic Exhibition, EXFILNA (Exposición Filatelica Nacional) or a Stampshow to promote philately and add new members.

Salvadorian Philatelist Day. In San Salvador, we celebrate every January 5th the Salvadorian Philatelist Day with activities such meetings, dinners, etc.
