The restored colonial building housing the museum dates back to 1868. Take an English-speaking guide to illuminate your visit and put the ceramics in context.

  • This very small museum was worth it for my mom and I. It gave us a good understanding of some of the history and the archeological digs. It's 5$ and it's next to the chocolate museum.  more »
  • $5 USD to view the exhibits. Interesting items, not too many. They seems to be working with recent archeological finds.  more »

  • A great place to know about Granada its history and customs
  • What might have been an institution worthy of one's support is yet another awful example of an organization which has embraced discrimination in all its ugly forms by charging those of foreign origin unconscionably high entry fees. Even students are not spared the despicable treatment; I went with some fellow student colleagues and they wouldn't dare treat us equally and fairly. I and a friend with "whiter" skin were subjected to outrageous questioning regarding our national origin and sought to be slapped with entrance fees over 1,500% higher than those of our colleagues. Such outrageousness cannot be condoned.
  • Great experience!
  • My Museum in Granada, Nicaragua my Museum is a nice place and with lots of educational, cultural and archaeological information. It is an ideal place for people of different ages and for those who want to learn more about our culture and history. Also, there are function rooms for conferences, a place to read quietly, have a delicious coffee, buy souvenirs and learn Spanish (Learn SPANISH)
