Opened in 1979 the museum is housed in a historic building of two wings. The first among these was the 17th century Customs Office of the Port of Cartagena de Indias, and the second was a 19th century extension of wineries from that era. The first floor hosts rotating exhibits of the museum’s permanent collections - Latin American painting, contemporary Colombian art, graphics, sculpture, abstract art, and the works of Alejandro Obregón and Enrique Grau. The second floor is where temporary exhibitions are held; check the museum website calendar to know more about them. The museum isn’t very large, but the collection is well curated, and worth the price of admission.
An unexpected gem near the north garden of the museum is the shop. With a fantastic selection of catalogs, postcards, materials related to the exhibitions, reproductions of works of art, various miniature sculptures, and many other curiosities, the shop enchants everyone who steps in. This is one of the best places in the city to get a souvenir.

Museum Of Modern Art Reviews & Ratings
Interesting but some of the pieces has lack of maintenance and exhibition must be translated to English at least , it seems like if the museum don't tell the history behind every piece. It has potential they can do it better turn into a experience and make more profit of what they got...will be very good to add a service of a guided tour to the route of the link that every artist has with the city
Good space and the art collection is ok but the building needs more care and attention with an proper air con !!!
Wow, nice exposing art... Very realistic painting and classic from cartagena
Nice little museum. Lost a star for lack of translations.
For being the great museum of modern art of the city it lacks of conservation. I understand they tried to show the chill vibe of the city but many of the art showed is not in a perfect state due because the humidity of the city.
