Colombia's oldest museum holds a vast collection of archeological artifacts, as well as modern art. The building itself is interesting—it's a former prison and many of the galleries are inside former prison cells.

Super museum, not allowed to take bags in so be prepared to leave them in a cloakroom. Allowed to take photos without flash. Interesting artefacts, good projects nicely presented - enjoyable visit.

The museum is great for all sorts of people, solo travelers, families, groups etc. Next to the normal collection, which is displayed very nicely, there is also an interactive area which is very fun for both adults and children.

Nice building, full of history and with a selected art collection. You can enjoy a relaxing walk on your own or wait for a guided tour.

Keep in mind I only speak and read English. There is lots of great historical artifacts but unfortunately since there was a lack of English signs it was tough to gain the full experience. This would be a fantastic place if you can read Spanish....More

This is an interesting museum. The layout is a bit unusual, I think the building is a former prison. Nice properly lighted and roomy displays, perfectly displayed artifacts. It was a pleasure to walk the museum, despite a lack of English signs. There is a...More

Yes, it is. Visiting on working days is preferred than going on the weekends. You can visit after 10:00 a.m. And I believe they close at 4:00 p.m.
