Trip Planner: Central America / Nicaragua / Leon Department / Leon / Museo de Arte Fundacion Ortiz-Gurdian
Observe colonial and contemporary art in a complex of five colonial-era buildings connected together at Museo de Arte Fundacion Ortiz-Gurdian. The art collection consists mostly of Latin American art, though some sculptures and paintings in the collection were created by European artists. Hire an English-speaking guide to take you through the exhibits and talk you through the pieces and the artists’ stories. The standing collection is impressive on its own, but the museum also changes out exhibits regularly.

This is without a doubt a world class art gallery. Unbelievable variety of styles, both local, European, modern, abstract, sculptures. Completely blew me away how much there was to see here. This is a must do if traveling through Central America and worth coming to Leon for this art gallery alone, whether you're an avid art lover or not. IMO if this gallery was in New York it would be a top five gallery to see. Paid $4.50USD for entrance as well a tour (not including tip). Offered in English as well.
One of the most incredible collection. You should not miss it for any reason
