When in León you can visit this great museum and learn about nature of Nicaragua and its insects. From big spiders to all kind of butterflies you will learn of insects of the country with the help of the owner.

oke where to begin...i absolutely love it here. When we first knocked on the door, this man that looks majestic opend the door to welcome us. He showed us around his collection. I learned a lot from him. Even if you are not interested in bugs, it is also just amazing to see the passion this guy has for what he does, The entrance is just 20 cordobras($0.70) that all goes in the maintenance of the museum. officially the place closes at 4 but we were there for over 2 hours an left around 6. We learned a lot more than just about insects from this man. Because he hs done alot of amazing things in his life and because he has been living in leon for such a long time he knows alot about Nicaragua and the olden"days so i learned a lot about from him as well. If you are interested in things that live in nature or just if you are looking for good conversation THIS IS THE PLACE TO GO !!!!

I walked pass the museum twice before realising it was there. I had to ring the bell and wait for a lady wearing a night gown to let me in. The museum is very small, it smells like moth balls and it seems like it is in someone's house. All the insects boxes were covered by blankets, so I had to wait for the lady to remove them. I felt a little uncomfortable as I was the only one there. There wasn't a lot to see: beetles, spiders, butterflies... A lot of insects boxes were piled up in the back. There was a cute white female rat in a very dirty and very small cage. I stayed 20 minutes, and I took my time! I could be a lot better, but I guess you can't expect too much for 20 cordobas (less than US$1).

This museum is very tiny - and there is not very much to see. It is maybe 40m2 big in total. But the guy who works here is very passionate and LOVES to talk about his work! That was really great! We stayed for maybe 20 minutes and that really was enough. But it was also very cheap, only 20 Cordobas.

Biggest and most complete collection of insects in the country. An essential stop for anybody fascinated with bugs. Not so essential for anybody else. It is in a tranquil house. Knock on door even if the place appears to be closed.
