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. A visit to Museo Ruben Dario represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Leon trip itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

  • I went without much idea of the life of the author, but the truth is that this Museum, as well as the funny thing that is always entering a House lived someone important, provides enough information about it. The information is detailed, but not heavy. I think it is very appropriate.

  • Nice compilation of Dario's life.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Interesting but not much to see
  • Went with a personal driver and guide. If you're into history, this is the place.
