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.

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.

I must say that I was suprised about this. I was expecting a more rustic exhibition, but found a modern up to date museum. The museum gives a good comprehension of Colombien culture and history!

I spent a few hours here today. It was enjoyable, but not awe-inspiring. Got some good looks at some Pre-Colombian work, some nice pieces on loan from France. All in all worth a few hours. Price is right.

Before any Museum, this one is a must see. I recomend it, and the Policia National as the first two, to cover history, of Colombia.

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.
