I was there on a Monday so it seemed relatively quiet. The old church is worth a few pictures. And the museum has really great exhibits. If you don't read Spanish get a guide and you will find out things you neve what have known. Don't walk around the surrounding barrios, they can be a little dangerous. But the park is very safe. Lot of security

Very interesting to see in person what I saw in 1979 when the revolution was won by the Sandinistas. The National Palace Museum contains some incredible artifacts of the nation and explains the terrain and geography very well. The square is vast and this is a must see. Best to go with a guide. But really need to see it. Then go on to Tiscapa Hill (look for the huge statue of Agosto C. Sandino) and take a look at the museum there.

This one stop can provide insight to any tourist wanting to better understand the Nicaraguan people. It is well done, given resource limitations. Our English speaking guide was fantastic. Ruben Dario, always a treasure, has great visibility in the museum - do visit his home in Leon, for greater understanding. My personal favorite wing is the fine arts, where two masterpieces from Alejandro Alonso Rochi are displayed.

So worth visiting!!!

Any traveler in Managua must visit at least one time this historic building. It has been an iconic site of the political history of the Republic of Nicaragua since a lot of years ago and several administrations.

I really liked this place. It is a cool old damp building, mostly open air. But houses some really interesting bits of Nicaraguan history. Some amazingly old. Beautiful pottery. My Spanish is, uh, developing. My guide, who just appeared, only spoke Spanish. Required him to act out part of their history. He was a great sport. I really enjoyed the experience.
