It helps to love ancient history, but in any case, it is worth the 45 minutes you will spend. Certainly not a world class museum, but you will not readily see their collection elsewhere.

Great art. Especially the ceramic pieces that they sell. It's a small museum that you can get through in half an hour. It takes longer if you read all the interesting information on the digs. And it's free.

This is a one of a kind -- a private museum of PreColombia ceramics. Spacious rooms around open courtyards in the Spanish way. Some excellent modern pieces by local artists for sale -- so you can bring home memories of having seen the real, antique, beautifully preserved ceramics of this area.

Quite interesting. More for adults to take their time to look at historical artifacts and read all the info included than for little preschoolers ambling around looking to break something.

An excellent place to spend a few hours and go for a relaxing stroll. I think there is a donation for walking around the museum. But worth taking the time to visit. There are many wonderful sites in Granada.

Nothing that special, but was a good break from walking around town. The tour is free, but they ask for a donation.

Great displays of traditional pottery. Completely free. I was the only one there when I went and it was well worth a half hour stop.

As we were walking around the city, we found the Art Gallery museum which has some once contemporary art and also old pieces depicting the nicaraguan culture. It was nicely arranged and explained. There was a lovely garden too…nice spot just to go have a look while walking around town. Plus its free so a bonus there!

It is unusual to find a free museum nowadays. This one had all kinds of archeological finds from different areas and time periods in Nicaraguan history. My only suggestion would be some more discussion in English about the difference in the patterns and colors used on the ceramics. There are even some more modern art pieces that are for sale....
