Dear Glaze123, Thank you for your review of the museum. I'm sad to hear that there wasn't a guide available. We normally have an English speaking guide and several Spanish speaking guides available to show the museum. As you point out, they bring the artefacts...More

Interesting archeological collection. Highlight for me was the interpretation: there is a lot of info available, both in Spanish and in English. Worth 1 to 2 hours of your time. I especially liked this since most other activities in Nica were nature rather than culture...More

If you want a bog standard arty museum reflecting the area this is it. Not brilliant, but not bad. We had a guide which made it more interesting, but those really interested in art will get the most out of it.More

This museum has lots of interesting arts work and artifacts that tells you the history of Nicaragua. It is not vast, but enough to say how people lived in those days. Well kept and it has a nice garden inside.

It was fine. Mostly a store selling ceramics, though it does seem like they have other stuff going on behind the scenes. All of it is ceramics. You get a guide to accompany you, but not one that speaks English. $5 for foreigners.

If you like ceramics this is probably good. If not it is a lot of ceramics. It is also no longer free and is $5 per person.
