In downtown Caracas almost everything is ugly except for this place. The set up is good, the art is good and the building is in great conditions.

Lots of history in this place. Luckily my friend was a local and was showing me around as the exhibits where in Spanish. I still found the museum very interesting and with Bolivar's house next door you can visit both quite easily. As with most of Caracas just be aware of your surroundings when visiting.

To those history lovers, this is a place to see. Many of the artifacts used by Simon Bolivar are at this museum. Not only it is a great place to see for the items inside of it, but it is next to his house which makes it more intriguing. Must see if you would like to learn more of this... More

nice to see a part of the culture all in one place. I like when museums help you to save your time and at the same time get you familiar with local culture and local heros like Simon Bolivar.

A few interesting exhibits in here. No English translations which didn't really bother me but which would put off some tourists to whom this place aimed.

I visited the house back in 2011, and there is some great pieces of history here, the house isn't too big, or commercial. The only down side is due to lack of Tourism in Caracas, there isn't a single word written in English here. Either learn up on the history before you arrive, or take a small translator, but be...

An interesting museum devoted to aspects of the life of Simon Bolivar. I found the exhibit on the exhumation of his remains to be quite disturbing.

First of all, the Museo is NOT the Casa Natal. And the Museo is a mishmash, only mildly interesting, and, well, that's about all there is to say. It is certainly worth a visit because it is free, but even more importantly because it's fascinating to wander around and wonder about the people working there and their observable deference. The...
