Museum of History and Archaeology - Museum Esteli - Nicaragua

Adjacent to the Gallery of Heroes and Martyrs, this tiny, slightly dilapidated museum houses an eclectic collection of artifacts, from antique phones and typewriters to archaeological finds. Perhaps the most interesting feature is a diorama of the sites where pre-Columbian artifacts were originally discovered.


Non-Spanish speakers beware: the docent does not speak English and the faded captions (which only occasionally accompany exhibits) are only in Spanish.
