Here you will be guided by actual freedom fighters as they take you through a very make shift but nonetheless moving story of dictatorship and revolution. It takes an hour at most but easily the best hour you will spend in Leon. A first hand...More

The exhibitis need a lot of help, i.e. there are newspaper clippings behind class but I am concerned about their viability longterm. The guide, who spoke English, was very knowledgeable and gave me a real sense of what the the revolution must have been like.

NOTE: some guides command of english is week, if you can take the tour in spanish. The museum and its guides do a good job of explaining Nicaragua's interesting political history.

The tour was very quick and the guide didn't open up for questions. The museum is located in a beautiful building that sadly is not being taken care of.

The guide was very good and extremely knowledgeable as he had fought in the struggle in Leon, and as a Central American who has studied the conflicts, his account and narrative was accurate. The building and photographs are in dire need of repair and upkeep,...More
