Museo Del Caribe Reviews & Ratings
This was my 2nd time going to the museum. I got there the first time with who is now my husband and later with my dad and niece. The museum is really nice. It has a huge selection of indigenous things. My niece also had a great time although she would get anxious and wanted to leave the floors after 15 minutes of been there. My dad really enjoyed it a lot. He said he will go any other day by himself so he can spend the time reading everything and watching all the videos that the museum offers. This place is fantastic. It has a private parking and also easy way to get there using public transportation. Oh I almost forgot. I also saw a group that was been toured by a guide in English. So if you don't speak Spanish there are guides that will teach you in English 😉
Definitely worth seeing (in a bit of a sketchy area), lots of interesting knowledge of the region, some staff speaks English (to some degree, but they really give their best), majority of the recordings is in Spanish (if you don't speak Spanish, audio set is strongly advised) Overall a nice place to visit!
Amazing museum about the caribbean culture in Colombia. Completely worth visiting.
We have to support all these guys Working every day for better future
Nice museum, very nice staff, and you can learn a lot
