Museo de Arte Fundacion Ortiz-Gurdian, Leon
(4.4/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
Observe colonial and contemporary art in a complex of five colonial-era buildings connected together at Museo de Arte Fundacion Ortiz-Gurdian. The art collection consists mostly of Latin American art, though some sculptures and paintings in the collection were created by European artists. Hire an English-speaking guide to take you through the exhibits and talk you through the pieces and the artists’ stories. The standing collection is impressive on its own, but the museum also changes out exhibits regularly.

  • The collection of abstract works by Central American painters is very original and interesting.Lots of paintings by Chagall and quite a few by Dali.The paintings are indirectly exposed to the open air...  more »
  • Whenever I go to Leon and I have time to go to the Museum, I do it, is I'm going to find new and more interesting exhibits; the House itself is an architectural masterpiece of the colonial city.

  • This museum really expanded my understanding of Nicaragua. Anyone who appreciates modern art will appreciate the quality, diversity and creativity of the works displayed here. The buildings is gorgeous as well. I wasn't expecting this experience when I went here. I HIGHLY recommend it.
  • If you like modern art it's a great place. I'm not that much into it and the museum is not offering much to get into it. So it was a kind of boring for me. If you like modern art it's for sure a great place.
  • Brilliant art gallery in beautiful setting, do visit, I think you will love it, I did. I went with no expectations as I have no knowledge of Central American artists and was completely blown away by how fantastic some of the work was.
  • Must see if you want to have an overview about central american art - free entry on Sunday!
  • The American painting collection is great and is very pleasant to visit.
