Didn't know the artist but his work and associated exhibits are definitely worth seeing. Acnuna's influences include pre-Colombian culture, colonial art & contemporary painting (he lived 1904-1993 & was encouraged by Picasso). Murals surrounding courtyard are like nothing I've seen before. Shame I couldn't find...More

Knew nothing about the artist, but that made no difference. The house was worth the visit; the art a plus; and the quirky collection of other art even better. Acuna's incorporation of indigenous art was really neat.

Interesting small collection of art by the artist. The house and gardens are a relaxing place to spend some time. My favorite part was the murals on the walls of the central patio.

The museum needs to explain better the pieces of the artist and that means more research about his thoughts and life. The pieces and the house are well preserved.

Visited during our few days in VDL, felt as though the entry cost of COP6000 over valued what is a very small venue. Many other museums in the area are free entry & take a good couple of hours to take in.
