Colombian National Museum, Bogota Reviews

  • Didn't find it as good as many of Bogota's other museums. Collections is disjointed almost haphazardly put together

  • One of the most beautiful places in Bogotá, for its historical, architectural and cultural value. Site recommended when visiting the capital.

  • Main intro descriptions were in English which was nice. Mainly paintings but also some sculptures. Nicely laid out in several rooms. The modern art area upstairs was great

  • This museum is not that great. Alot of mismatch and not in any chronological order. Just things thrown together.

  • At this museum I've discovered different great artists like her (Katie James) so I recommend to pay attention to the concerts for free that the museum offers in its month schedule.
