  • Who stop in León to visit be sure this Museum at the Parque central in addition to the former main post office and current Claro branch. People who were involved in the uprising against the fascist regime of the Somoza tell the story of the capital of the revolution. The numerous wall time pure, you can see that so-called murals in the city then with different eyes. To conclude on the roof, the view is terrific.

  • A museum like you've never seen! The guides are veterans of the revolution, their tasty explanations leave the door open to your questions. The disconcerting exhibits, nonexistent museography and the decrepit building remained in its juice from the days of its glory, that is to say before the revolution, make a real curiosity. A dive in a different space-time. I loved!
