Casa Museo Judith Kain

Museum in Bilwi (Puerto Cabezas)

Set in the former home of a prolific local painter, this museum provides a window into what it was like to live in Bilwi in the good old days. There are black-and-white photos, old dugout canoes, terrific local handicrafts and an antique collection (the sewing machines are especially cool); dozens of Kain's paintings are also on display.

It’s attached to the most atmospheric hotel in town.
