  • This was probably my favorite part of our Leon visit. The men running this place were so warm and welcoming, even with our limited Spanish. The history and the stories they tell are powerful and important. Make time to stop there, maybe they'll take you up on the roof!
  • We had a gritty down to earth tour through the museum by veteran. Good review of Nicaraguan history. The English of the guide wasn't perfect but he got his point across. Make certain you go onto the roof!
  • Very interesting, but you need good spanish skills for understanding. A former soldier/veteran will guide you through the museum.
  • Very interesting but can understand Spanish. It is in absolute need of doing a tour with guides to the experiences of them counted.
