This museum is the house where Colombian painter Luis Alberto Acuna lived the last 15 years of his life. It is right on the Plaza Major. While it doesn't note it on the plaque on the door, the museum is closed from 1230 - 200....More

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.
