“great exposure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

we enjoyed a lot this visit even if the private guide we took was quite sleepy...
the entrance fee is 20 cordoba (1 USD), if u wanna a private guide u pay 30 cordoba each more.
they have a great exposure of portraits from 1400 on.
i had never seen such old works so close and without protection. i wondered why they were so open to people and the guide simply answered that leon is a safe city and they dont worry about it... whatever.
there is some work of picasso, rembrandt, botero and many central american artists...

“For 1$ you won't believe your eyes...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

A world class art collection in two gorgeous classic Leon houses. No plexiglass and very little security means you get to stand up close and revel in these masterpieces. The modern art collection is fun and interesting; this is a brilliant way to spend a couple of hours in Leon.

“A must visit gallery in Leon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Great selection of art from the 15th century to present day, as well as sculpture and Nica ceramics. The modern art in particular has most of central America well represented. Make sure you take time to visit the 2nd gallery (all modern art) on the other side of the street. Free entry on Sundays.
Convenient location for CocinArte vegetarian restuarant.

“Unknown Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

If are are in Léon and have enough visiting churches - its definitely worth (old and contemporary art from Europe & Latin America) . Extremely good value (20 C$ less than 1 $ US) entrance fee for the two exhibit houses.
