I briefly visited the coffee museum, mainly because the Carlos Fonseca museum was closed. I was pleasantly surprised that there was a lot of history attended to in the museum. History of coffee Nicaragua was thoroughly covered. There was even a bit about Carlos, so...More

Rather faded but a comprehensive and informative display about coffee, from who came here with the first seeds, to how it gets to your cup. Worth a visit and leave a donation! Clean toilet

We enjoyed our visit here. Lots of interesting information about not only coffee production but the impact on the country as well as the history of the town too. Recommended if you've come all this way

Nice museum outlining the history of the area, especially the role of café in the local economy and the interesting history of foreigners in this part of Nicaragua.

Large panels are in both Spanish and English explaining the history of coffee farming, the labor struggles, and the push to have local farmers benefit more from the exportation of coffee. Small number of interesting historical objects. It's not well lit, so recommend going on...More

Not exciting but worth a stop to look at a few artifacts and read about the coffee history. Discovered that processing coffee is a rather complicated process that includes fermenting, washing, drying and flavors are affected by humidity and environment.

A small but very informative museum. It had great displays of old grinding stones and machinery, also photos and displays of the history of the area. A must to visit.

we had some time to kill so found the museum only to be advised it was closed on Sundays. why have a staff member there just to advise they are closed? why not just close the door, same result.

Worth spending 10 minutes in if it's open when you're nearby, but nothing more. It's free but it's just text about coffee and some local musician. If it's closed just spend 10 minutes browsing Wikipedia for information about coffee.

If the lighting was brighter with fewer burnt out bulbs the printed history would have been far easier to read. Several empty display cases and the ones housing artifacts were either unlit and also housing deceased insects. If you're in the area I'd suggest stopping...More
