The home of colonial art, the Museo de Arte Colonial was restored in 1999 to preserve the exhibits and keep it open to public. Not as well maintained as the other bigger museums of the city, the walls are tainted with trail sketches and other such blemishes. While the bottom half of the museum is dictated by the religious artifacts, a majority of the pieces on display are the works of Gregorio Vásquez de Arce y Ceballos, Columbia’s beloved baroque artist.

The place is having a nice chiostro, which for me was the best thing that I saw here. The museum is well organised for those interested to know more about colonial art, old paintings and history.
Wonderful museum featuring tons of artwork and artifacts from the 15th century onward.
Nice old colonial building with fountain at the middle. You Will know more about structure of the colonial society. National and d oro museum are far better in the creativity the exposition were built with. Sunday: free entrance.
Recently restored, this museum offers an amazing insight to the country's colonial period. It is very well curated and the art exhibition is on edge. Adding to all of this, the building is just beautiful.
