This is an old colonial house that was very important in Colombia's fight for independence. It is located on the corner of Bolivar Plaza and the entry fee is very reasonable. The house was restored from a derelict condition, but the interior is laid out as hands-on museum, and there are no original fixtures or fittings. There is some information in English, but it does not really explain to the casual visitor the importance of what took place in this location. There is a pleasant garden out the back.

Fascinating story of how a broken vase and the ensuing row played such a major role in the violent history of Bogota. This very same broken vase is in display on the first floor!
This small museum has very little by way of English info boards but its worth seeing for the vase, for the beauty of the house itself and for the fact that the veranda has the very best view of Plaza Bolivar than can be got!

I had general knowledge of the history of South America but a visit to this museum provided specifics about the Colombian fight for independence. The museum is small but impossible to miss as it sits right next to the Cathedral on the Plaza de Bolivar. It is a lovely colonial building with a courtyard and upstairs balconies which afford a great view of the plaza. The displays are presented in a logical way and have been designed to engage visitors of all ages. It's absolutely worth a visit.

In this house, disputing over a flower pot, the revolution began.
Its worth it, to spend time here, listening to all the history and tales that made the revolution explode !

There is not so much to see in this museum of Independence. An old house where there are some explanations in Spanish. The entrance is 3000pesos (less than 1usd).

For a museum in the capital city, they must know that there will be plenty of non Spanish speakers visiting the museum; however, non of the descriptions were translated to English. Also, there are many school students on field trips. While it is good that students are learning, it makes for a very poor tourist experience when one is trying to visit and all the rooms are packed full of elementary school students. They should arrange for private viewings or something so that everyone can get a good experience.

This museum is located in a very important area for Colombia's independence history. It is small, but full of interesting information. I especially enjoyed the interactive activities to make you engage with the material.

My only issue is the lack of information in English.

This place was the starting point of the colombian independence campaign, in 1810. The muesum is an interesting collection of historic items, developing a tour through Bogota's history, from the colony to current times. Recomended, but a better guidance would be very appreciated.

This tiny museum is easily visited being just on the corner of the Plaza de Bolívar. The entrance fee of 3000 pesos is good value for a wander around for about an hour or so. Most of the exhibits are in spanish but you get a fair ideal what is being explained if you have a small grasp of spanish like I do. There are some good exhibits on display including the vase that led to a rebellion. I particularly enjoyed the video showing the army raiding the supreme court in 1985 after guerrillas took the building over. There is also a tiny garden as part of the museum. One negative for me was the security guard on the first floor that followed me around the musuem.
