Colombian National Museum, Bogota Reviews

  • One of the best museum that I have been, the entrance fee is not much expensive ( I forgot how much I paid). I stayed there for 3 hours and could stay even longer, but o was tired, so I left that place. I saw everything, but I could stay longer in each room. Definitely to the ones that are going to Bogotá is must to go.

  • El museo es un completo e interesante recorrido por la historia colonial y republicana de Colombia. Se puede apreciar pinturas, esculturas, información audiovisual y elementos varios conservados durante varios siglos para su exposición como armas, herramientas, utensilios y mobiliario tradicional de la época. Construido en lo que antiguamente era el panóptico de Bogotá (prisión), es posible apreciar también las características de esa corriente arquitectónica carcelaria que se extendió a lo largo y anchon del mundo en el siglo XVIII. El recorrido se puede completar en 1.5 horas. Altamente recomendable.

  • One of many Museums in Bogota, this one resides in an old prison in downtown Bogota proper. Many pre-columbian exhibits, colonial, and modern art displays. Nearby is the "Coloseum", planetarium, Montserrate, and on Sunday the "Market of fleas" on the boulevard. The street market might also be on Saturday but I would ask around first. Plan well and you'll have a pleasant and memorable time.

  • Its such a good place to go alone, with friends or family that you will want to come back. It has a collection of art and historical pieces that it's always worth a visit. On Sunday it's almost impossible to find parking so some people leave the car in the street and if you like to appreciate more than see, you better choose a different day as on Sundays it's crowded

  • Half was closesmd for renovation but the price was the same. New style exhibits were very engaging and I like what they're trying to do with it.
