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...More

Strange little museum. It did not follow any particular order and although there were a few interesting displays (including one relating to the M-19 siege of the supreme court building several years ago), on the whole this was not well laid out and did not...More

A slightly eclectic historical museum. Mostly it focuses on colonial times and the role the building played in Colombian independence. But there is also a section on the events of 1985 when the M-19 guerrilla group took over the Supreme Court Building across the street....More

Every Wednesday at 3 pm a guided visit in English is available. The tour takes you back in the history of Colombia until the current situation of the peace process. A must to understand Colombia.
