This overpriced, un-airconditioned privately run museum has a few intriguing pieces of art and local history, including a room dedicated to Gabriel García Márquez, and some nice carnaval costumes. It also has many head-scratchers on display.

This museum features artifacts from Barranquilla's past which includes anything from artwork,photos, pictures, furniture, musical instruments, costumes (Carnival) just to name a few. The building itself is from Barranquilla's glory years in the 30"s although a bit rundown now due to lack of funds for maintenance it is still the place to visit for Barranquilla history.

The Director, Alfredo de la Espiella, is a charming man who gave us a personal tour. This museum was not on the list you offered for comment but we liked it and think it... More
