A very nice collection and a beautiful colonial complex. We had a nice time walking the halls. Saw a few Picassos as well..and others.

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.

As you enter, you will ask yourself..Where is everybody? We had the place to ourselves the entire time and although we loved the experience, we worried about the museum's sustainability. This is the best art exhibit we have seen in Nicaragua. It was wonderful to...More

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

This is a truly impressive collection- think Jackson, warhol and Picasso. So wasn't expecting it to be so large or varied. The space is also great - colonial house. I think I was the only paying visitor at times, and the curators would anticipate where...More

Tranquil surroundings along colonnaded courtyards give a glimpse of 16th and 17th century painting, 20th and 21st century paintings and sculptures by Central-American artists, with emphasis of Nicaraguan names or names-to-be.

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
