Great museum. All sorts of interesting artifacts and some nice, compact and thoughtful exhibits. I think this is a nice complementary experience with the Gold Museum. Recommended!

Original furniture from the home and a large display of pottery from several areas of the country. It cost 4,000 admission or 3,500 for seniors. The second floor housed the pottery and on the ground floor there was a special exhibit of masks.

It really needs more organisation and development to value the artifacts on display. Entrance fee very reasonable, I was almost the...More

This is a little visited gem in Bogota. It houses the art collection of the Banco Popular. The museum really needs to rename and rebrand itself since the collection is both pre-Columbian pottery and Spanish colonial art housed in a historically significant 17th century home....More

beautiful house turned museum - museum officer came round with me and we managed to communicate despite my lack of Spanish and his lack of English. Well worth a visit.
