“Important location”

Reviewed 11 October 2016

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.

very interactive and self-explicative. If you could take a tour with a person who know very well the history of the place is going to be better.

Very small ,but very special museum. The museum on it's own doesn't have much to show and is limited in space because it's located in a colonial house right on the corner of Bogota's plaza Bolivar. DO ask for the free guided tour as it will make your visit complete. The guide will involve you in the presentation and interact with the audience. Listen carefully to understand how an ornamental vase became the symbol of the Colombian independence in 1810.
