Overview

We are a contemporary art museum. Our collection and exhibitions show the way in which we see the world and see ourselves: the objects corresponding to history and the society that created them; objects that are conserved, studied and enhanced with the aim of reaching a better knowledge of our environment and of ourselves. Four fundamental principles guide our work: a critical reading of history, a critical reading of the territory, the impact on the city of Medelln and the social appropriation of art. Our project was founded in 1881 as a cultural and educational project, making us one of the oldest museums in Colombia. We have one of the largest collections in the region, with 6,000 works and historical documents. Our exhibitions and our educational-community projects turn art into a fundamental tool to help us reflect our nature as a society.

Know More about this tour

At the moment we have 8 open rooms with permanent exhibitions:

The mud has a voice:
This exhibition brings together ceramic pieces from different times and origins, moving away from the model in which origins and antiquity take precedence over the valuation of the remains of the past.

Stories to rethink:
We opened the re-assembly of our permanent exhibition of the late nineteenth and the first half of the twentieth, an exhibition that would raise critical reviews of the history and milestones of Antioquia art, in a dialogue between artists belonging to that period and contemporary creators.

Colonial and Republican room:
The Colonial and Republican Room exhibits a series of religious works as well as portraits of heroes of the Independence, both in paintings and sculptures and photographs, and pieces alluding to battles and their leaders.

The Consent:
Project of the Museum to bring the public closer to works from our collection.

International Art Room:
This collection presents representative examples of modern and contemporary trends in international art.

Fernando Botero Room:
These rooms bring together the best of the production of the artist from Antioquia, whose formal and thematic proposal is recognized in the history of international art.

Luis Caballero Room
This room exhibits the work with which Luis Caballero won the first Coltejer Art Biennial, in 1968.

Pedrito Botero Room
Who is Fernando Botero? What does he do? How does he do his works? Why does he do it? To answer these four questions, the Museum of Antioquia opens the Sala Pedrito Botero.

The Museum carries out educational projects on a regional scale, as well as conferences, university forums, film cycles, book presentations and concerts.

The Room XX-XXI Century will be closed from April 2 to the month of May, due to the refurbishment work of this space to integrate the Sala Bienales de Arte de Coltejer, with which we will give an even more complete reading to the production art in Medelln for the second half of the last century. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to your visit and we are waiting for you to open this renovated room in May.
