When we were here we were unable to enter, however I gather that this area has recently been improved a lot. Even if you don't have time to go in it is worth a stroll around the outside because it is a beautiful and very impressive building. When in Managua its a land mark worth checking out.

There is a large square here where they sometimes have parades and drills for the local police, which is something we witnessed - very impressive also!

for the size of this building, you would expect a great number of exhibit. sad to say it was a bit of a let down. i was hoping to learn more about nicaragua but i guess i went to the wrong museum. great murals by the way.

it's centralized to other tourist attraction so makes it worth-it.

We enjoyed seeing the displays, we just wished we had more room to explore on our own rather than having a guide with us.

The national palace/museum was an impressive building by itself, but it also had some very interesting exhibits, covering all aspects of Nicaragua. From the geology, paleontology, and pre-Colombian cultures...to the climate, the arts, and the many cultures/celebrations around the country. We only had about an hour to spend here, but we learned quite a bit. Worth the visit.
