  • The building is nothing more than a shot up old ruin. However, the guerrilla warriors themselves are the tourguides here. Their stories make the history come alive. Impressive and emotionally charged.  more »

  • 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!
  • A bit expensive for what it is (100 Cordobas) but the money goes for a good cause, the veterans's medicines and pensions. History being explained by someone that fought in the war was an amazing experience, also to be able to walk on the roof ( be careful with the holes !)
  • Very interesting, but you need good spanish skills for understanding. A former soldier/veteran will guide you through the museum.
  • Very nice experience, the guide is a veteran of the war, that if facilities are humble but it is worth entering, the money goes to a good cause,
