“Surprisingly good art museum”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

My guidebook described this as one of best art museums in Central America, and from my experience that is no exaggeration. A wonderful collection of some older religious art but mainly modern/contemporary with a focus on the region. Set in a sprawling colonial house with multiple courtyards. Highly recommended.

“Don't miss this extraordinary art gallery”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

Housed in a lovely colonial mansion, the collection of Central American art paintings is full of vibrant colorful and exotic works. I was entranced with the permanent paintings, but also taken with very original modern mixed media exhibitions. These few hours were among the most pleasant in all of Nicaragua. Don't miss out... go!

“Beautiful Old Mansion”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the art gallery. A great place to learn about renowned Central American artists. Of course the colonial buildings and garden added a lot to visit as well.

“5 *s, and I'm not even an art lover”
Reviewed 28 February 2014

This place was phenomenal. And at $1 US dollar, it was an incredible steal. The place is serene, and quiet respite from the loud streets. It's a not-to-be-missed museum!

“Wonderful Art Museum”
Reviewed 25 February 2014

Wonderful art museum that should not be missed. Very high quality art work, of mostly Latin American artists, but there are also Picassos. The colonial building, with multiple court yards, makes for a great setting.
