  • This museum is home to an interesting selection of art, some of it engaging, some of it amusing, some of it thought-provoking, some of it inevitably just making you shrug. Bogotá artist Fanny Sanín...  more »
  • Our group of 3 friends make our own way to this museum and took a leisurely 1 1/2 walk through some very challenging as well as informative installations. The cafe there is very good.  more »

  • One of the best museums of Medellin and Colombia. It is a museum that offers you great modern expositions, 2 that are always and one that is temporary so you can enjoy something new always. It has great and spacious saloons where you can see all the expositions and the people and volunteers that works in the museum will explain you the art that is showing in the moment. The entry has for the moment price to pay of 12.000 COP and they explain you in the entry what ate they showing in the moment. You have also a magnificent view of the city on the great balcony on the third floor.
  • Most modern art museums have me scratching my head about how the pieces found a place in the gallery. This museum was different in that the pieces were intricate, challenging, and informative about Colombian history and culture. The garden terraces offer incredible views of Medellin. There are plenty of food places nearby as well as park to enjoy a picnic. While the content may be a bit strong for some, I'd recommend this museum to those looking to spend a couple hours exploring various Colombian perspectives on their tumultuous history.
