  • This is a fun museum, with everything neatly arranged in five different periods. Guided tour done, then you get a lot of information. There are a lot of objects found. Interesting are the large earthenware pots, which graves are. In and at the tombs are also found all kinds of objects that refer to the deceased or that he/she. Beautiful vases and objects used in offerings to the gods. There is a souvenir shop and there is another building which is fun to visit: here is the history of Nicaragua on the basis of money told. Begins with a cocoa bean, which at that time, gold was worth and ends at the current money.
