This museum displays a wonderful collection of artists, many of whom are missing from galleries and museums in the United States. I only wish it had a better developed gift shop. I have searched in vain for reproductions online. One thing blew me away: on...More

I was shocked by the sheer size and variety of this museum. What a beautiful and diverse collection in such a unique setting - 4 different "houses" housing various Latin American, Central American, North American, and European art. Warhol, Picasso, Basquiat, and much more! On...More

No hyperbole, this is the best art gallery in the whole of Central America. It's huge, cheap, and full of genuine treasure from famous artists, American and otherwise. They're very strict about taking photos inside, and I got a stern telling off before I'd seen...More

Truly impressive collection of international and regional art. What a surprkse! While sering Basquait, Picasso, Rembrandt were all super cool, I really enjoyed seeing Alejandro Morales' work on Nicaraguan history (Specifically paintings of the 'legend of Gen. Sandino' series he did). Very cool.

This gallery is comprised of five old houses that display the private collection of a banking family. Each room features a certain type of painting e.g. naive, religious, contemporary etc. The rooms of each house flow into one another, often with central courtyards featuring contemporary...More

Not only is there a wonderful collection of 16 & 17th century art, as well as other paintings, the building itself offers a glimpse of Spanish influence and décor. Inside courtyards and ponds (with turtles) provide a nice backdrop for all the art. I believe...More

Thanks to the Nicaragua app, we discovered this museum. Amazing art collection, couldn't believe some of these pieces could be found in a small city like Leon. The interior of the museum is so pretty and the entry fee is cheap (3,50 USD). It is...More

I think there may be 1 or 2 steps to come into the building..but I don't remember exactly. Otherwise the halls are pretty flat and there shouldn't be any steps inside. Only ground floor. There are guards everywhere (every... More
