Very interesting tour of the museum guided by a Sandinista veteran guerillero. The only negative was that the only person who tried to take advantage of me during my time in Nicaragua was this very Sandinista! He offered to sell me a FSLN flag. I...More

A very interesting history of the struggle of the people of Nicaragua. Tour guide had been part of the revolution & provided firsthand accounts of the conflict. A must for history buffs.

When we showed up at the museum, I was shocked at the complexity of Nicaraguan history. Being from the US, I am used to history being a very short time span. It was so cool to hear about history from before the US even existed,...More

I am fascinated by this piece of history as it happened within my lifetime. It was a treat to have someone who fought in the revolution tell us about the experience.

One of the best experience during our nicaragua trip. From the outside, the museum looks like it was conquered from the guardia civil yesterday and turned into a squat, which is not a bad thing at all. Our guide Xavier (a revolution veteran) was very...More

Don't expect a fancy museum with a.c. in a modern building. This tour is 2 rooms of old photos and newspaper clippings. The guides were part of the revolution itself and their passion and knowledge is fantastic. We learnt so much!

A very good way to learn about history from people who have actually lived it! It is more than a museum, its an experience. It might be best to speak abit of Spanish though..the nicaraguan revolutionary veterans might not get as much across as they...More

We went to the museum on a Sunday, so as far as I know it's open 7 days a week, probably in the 8:30-5:30 range but I can't confirm that. I believe getting some payment to be guides at the museum are how these revolution... More
