Museo Ruben Dario, Leon

4.1
#7 of 21 in Museums in Nicaragua
Specialty Museum Museum
Visit Museo Ruben Dario, the house of Nicaraguan poet, icon, journalist, and diplomat Ruben Dario. Massive brown doors greet you and lead into the charming, lush courtyard built in typical colonial style. Info boards in Spanish tell Dario’s story, from his early days at age 12 through to his death in 1916. Enter the old colonial residence and get a glimpse into history, for every piece of rustic yet humble furniture speaks for itself. See old black and white photos, intimate writings and manuscripts, and Dario's treasured bible. The bedroom where the famous poet ended his life has been preserved in its original state.

  • In school we learned about the great American poet Dario Rubén, go to León to visit his Museum was an obligation. The Museum is a colonial House on corner, located 4 blocks from central park and the payment of the entrance is a contribution. The first thing you see is a central courtyard typical of colonial architecture. In the Museum is the bed where he died and a mask made with mould which was taken of his face on the death. A very nice guide accompanied me on the trip, told me that he was doing his social work at the University. The young man was very skilled and very proud of Rubén Darío. Note: It is not permitted to take pictures.

  • Learned about the life of Rubin Dario, his home and hometown. I read his poem ," Margarita". It was great. Rubin Dario is held in the highest honor by people in Nicaragua and many places in central and south America. The home by today's standards is pretty basic. However in days gone by it was a beautiful home.
