About Palace Of The Inquisition Cartagena Historical Museum, Cartagena
This Spanish Baroque colonial-style villa is one of the most historically significant buildings in the old town of Cartagena. Completed in 1770, it is built from white brick, limestone and wood. It was the seat of the Holy Office of the Inquisition. Here the Inquisition put Semites, non-Catholics, and suspected black magic practitioners to trial. 800 people were publicly executed. Prior to the visit of the Pope, the palace used to exhibit instruments of torture alone. Today the first floor exhibits include pre-columbian pottery, historical art and antiques, and weapons and interrogation equipment. The second floor is used for temporary exhibitions that you can find out about from the attraction website calendar. And the third floor focuses on the history of the city.

Palace Of The Inquisition Cartagena Historical Museum, Cartagena Reviews
From the outside it looks like this Museum doesn't have much to offer, but that is definitely not the case! It is important to understand our history and see how it has shaped modern society. The courtyards are beautiful and give you a quiet space to relax.
Interesting historical museum in a beautiful setting of colonial mansions. Easy to understand and navigate. Most signs are in Spanish, but video and some information is in English. There is a audio guide, but you have to download an app on your phone to get it, for a cost of 6000 pesos. Free wifi available within the museum. Also visit the Gold Museum directly across the park. Free and interesting to make a good combo with this museum. Takes about 2-3 hours to cover both.
Explains the history of the region really well. I wish every text was translated to English as well. You still get a lot but if I had to guess I'd say maybe 1 out off 5 exhibit descriptions or just texts on the wall are translated to English. Definitely go have a look at the garden, the tree covering the entirety of it is amazing.
A stunning building in the heart of old Cartagena. Some good artifacts and local history related to the Spanish Inquisition. Well worth a trip.
An interesting theme and a big topic, obviously; but the exhibits are thin, and the museum ends up mostly consisting of writing on walls, with little primary documentation or recreation. Worth a visit, but breeze through.
