Colombian National Museum, Bogota Reviews
Excellent place to visit if you are interested in the history of Colombia. A very complete museum. Prices are cheap and they offer guide service to enjoy the visit and to learn Colombian history.
A very interesting place to learn Colombian history. The building itself is also quite fascinating as I think it was converted from an old prison. Quite a few Botero's paintings on top floor. I wish there are more English translations.
An interesting place to visit. It had detail on all Colombian history and artifacts from all the periods masking up the construct of modern Colombia. Most of the information is in Spanish, so come prepared to translate. Start on the top level and work your way down. Some nice photo opportunity as well.
Very nice and well laid out museums with great exhibits, but hardly any English translations, which made it very hard to learn anything about Colombian history.
Great museum, lots of art and history for different tastes. You would need to spend a lot of hours in here or just visit some specific things. Entrance is cheap and it's worth the visit.
