“nice mid day retreat”
Reviewed 30 November 2013

During the blaring mid day sun it is a fairly cool area which you can shelter away in while learning a lot about the story of Granada. If possible take a guide who take explain a lot more about the paintings and carvings (the signs on these are terrible). There are a lot of different exhibits and the model of Granada in particular are worth seeing.

They had a temporary exhibit about the day of the dead which sadly was not included time wise in our tour as it looked very interesting, but there were atleast a number of other interesting artefacts in other rooms to keep me engaged!

“Learning of Nicaraguan people and their ancestors”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

This is a very educative museum. The collection of historical objects, paintings and statues try to tell you the story of ancient people who lived here before Spaniards conquered the their land. I was lucky to have an excellent guide who shared lots of Nicaraguan history.

One of the highlight of my visit, was seeing Solentiname's oil paintings, which depict the simple way of life and joy, people used to have in these lands. The museum is located in a colonial house with a beautiful inner courtyard. Worth a visit, don't miss Centro Cultural Antiguo Convento San Francisto.
