Be sure to stop by this moving gallery devoted to fallen revolutionaries, with displays of faded photos, clothes and weaponry. Check out the exhibit (with English signage) on Leonel Rugama, the warrior-poet whose last line was his best. When he and Carlos Fonseca were surrounded by 300 Guardia Nacional troops supported by tanks and planes, they were told to surrender. ‘Surrender, your mother!’ he famously replied. (Which proves that a ‘your mama!’ retort is always a solid Plan B.)

Opening hours are irregular; if there's no one around swing by later.
