Amazing collection . Basquiats alone worth a visit. Totally unexpected . If you are on a cruise and like art and stop in Corinto, Nicaragua, contact Julio Tours in Leon and arrange a trip that includes this museum.

Sadly, the Art Center of the Ortiz-Gurdian Foundation has ceased all operations amid the current political strife. According to a July 15, 2018 statement the Art Center "will remain closed until safety has been restored to allow a healthy environment of development of local tourism”.
