This museum holds an incredible history told by those who lived it back in the days. A must for those who actually want to know the country they are visiting

Nothing exciting in this museum you Will pay 3$US/pers and see a room with the history of general Sandino. That's all. At the moment you can't even go upstairs , it's closed.

I was very excited coming here and was very disappointed. It is just one very small room with a few photos. You can walk to the top for a great view

A must do for any visitor to León. The volunteers are people who lived through and fought in the revolution, and it’s an incredible insight into the hardships faced.

A few murals, photos and newspaper clippings with almost no explanation in Spanish and none in English. The derelict building is about the most interesting thing to see. The only thing to make it worthwhile was a volunteer who could explain something about the recent...More
