Museo Ruben Dario, Leon

3.9
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.

  • If you are in Nicaragua will get to know the work of Ruben Darío your stay. The museum offers a good starting point if you are not yet familiar with the work of this exuberant poet.

  • I arrived 20 minutes before closing, read well were missing 20 minutes! the person of the entry, as I think your coworker or supervisor, are beings more rude I've ever met! the typical government employee before the time that comes out, does not attend! I entered but under the threat of quick view because they were already out! a pity, the House has interesting places, but the people who attend it, must be replaced immediately, by professional and truly interested people to publicize the life of Rubén Darío, with honor and respect it deserves.

  • In a beautiful colonial House with a large garden runs the Museum which houses images, documents and books relating to this great figure of the culture and the Nicaraguan and Latin American politics and belonging. The Museum could have better signage and clearer descriptions, as who unknown to his life, you can feel something lost. On-site care is almost non-existent.

  • 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.
  • Went with a personal driver and guide. If you're into history, this is the place.
  • It is very nice it has many personal artifacts, including his diplomatic dress attire. The museum is located in Rubén Dario's house where he lived and died. It has his bedroom as it appeared on the day he died.
  • Great extensive collection of art.
  • Rich in history of Nicaragua and one of it's icons
