If you are of the people who loves to know about poetry and its history, then this is a place you cannot miss when in León. The museum offers the possibility to see yourself about the life and death of famous nicaraguan write Rubén Darío.

This is more than we expected. There are painting from before 1000AD. It has amazing historical paintings about the culture and wars in Latin America. There are artifacts from the indigenous people in Nicaragua as well.
