About Museum Of Modern Art, Cartagena

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.
