Ortiz Gurdian Foundation Art Center

Ortiz Gurdian Foundation Art Center
Nicaragua may not be known for its museums, but León’s Ortiz Gurdián Foundation Art Center holds its own. The center seamlessly blends a private collection of national and international art, from renowned Nicaraguan painter Armando Morales to world-famous artists like Rubens, Miró, Picasso, Chagall, Matisse, and Diego Rivera. 

The Basics
The nonprofit Museo de Arte Fundacion Ortiz-Gurdián is spread across four restored colonial buildings in León’s historic center, each with a different collection spanning from pre-Columbian Nicaraguan artifacts to contemporary works from around the world. You can comb through the galleries on your own or hire a guide at the museum for a small fee. As one of the best art galleries in León, the gallery is included in a number of city tours, which show you the museum in the context of León’s thriving cultural scene.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Ortiz Gurdián Foundation Art Center is a must for art aficionados.
  • Plan to spend roughly two hours exploring the collection.
  • Courtyards with gardens and fountains offer places to relax between browsing.
  • Entrance is free on Sundays.
  • The museum has a sister location in Managua.

How to Get There
The Ortiz Gurdián Foundation Art Center is centrally located just off the park in León at Del Parque Central 2c. Pass right by it on a walk through the historic center, or take a taxi if you’re coming from another part of town. You can also visit as a day trip from Managua or Granada.

When to Get There
The center is open from 9am to 5pm Tuesday through Friday, 9:30am to 5pm Saturday, and 9am to 4pm Sunday. Go midday as a reprieve from León’s infamous heat.

Nearby Attractions
For a DIY León city tour, string together a visit to the art foundation with other nearby attractions such as the Rubén Darío Museum (Museo Rubén Darío), San Francisco Church (Iglesia de San Francisco), and León Cathedral (Catedral de León or Basílica de la Asunción)—the largest cathedral in Central America, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the burial place of Rubén Darío.
