Good info (some in English) on the history of the peoples and cultures of this area, and when I was there, a very interesting small exhibit of contemporary art at the back.

A Danish archeologist created this lovely display of pre-Columbian pottery, figurines and other objects near the central plaza. There are helpful signs explaining the local history and significance of the artifacts, in both English and Spanish.

This very small museum was worth it for my mom and I. It gave us a good understanding of some of the history and the archeological digs. It's 5$ and it's next to the chocolate museum.

$5 USD to view the exhibits. Interesting items, not too many. They seems to be working with recent archeological finds.

From the street through the giftshop you are already in. Would be great to have more pieces and more information about the native american heritage of Nicaragua. There is also a mini contemporary exhibition area at the back, worth an extra 10-15mins.
