I had my very own tour guide, when I got to the building it was basically empty. It is interesting and it has very good art pieces. The crafts room has very beautiful samples.
Never once felt like I had to go and check out the exhibits. However, the location is a very interesting place from a historical perspective-- the plaza out front will make you think of the earthquake (see the damaged shell of the Cathedral), the Sandinista takeover of the Palacio in 78 and the mass scenes of July 19. The actual... More
Located near the lake of Managua, it's the best museum in Nicaragua. C$20 for local and C$ 80 for others. The building is great from the outside and contains lots of collections.

But really need to see it.... More
This one stop can provide insight to any tourist wanting to better understand the Nicaraguan people. It is well done, given resource limitations. Our English speaking guide was fantastic. Ruben Dario, always a treasure, has great visibility in the museum - do visit his home in Leon, for greater understanding. My personal favorite wing is the fine arts, where two... More
Any traveler in Managua must visit at least one time this historic building. It has been an iconic site of the political history of the Republic of Nicaragua since a lot of years ago and several administrations.
