Interesting collection from mostly (all?) Colombian artists. Overall, we enjoyed the gallery. It would be good for a quick visit or for a serious art lover. When we went, the collection on display was very small, and there was no information available about the art,...More

my visit was short lived as I had other places to go. Art is in the eyes of the beholder. A cliché, I know, but if the shoe fits...you know the rest.

This is a small museum in the historic walled city. Lovely space, but the exhibits were so-so. One big room on the first level was dedicated to the work of the museum's founder. This was too much space devoted to one artist in my opinion....More

Small modern art museum. If you stay in a hotel within the walled city, it is probably walking distance. Opportunity to see work of South American artists that we don't normally see, some of which is very interesting.

This place was nice but not great. It cost 8,000 per person but had no air conditioning. It's a bit small and some of the art is a little odd. Perhaps this was because they had the best art pieces visible from the city street.

it was fun to look at art in an unpretentious setting. the architecture of the space rivaled the art. as soon as you started feeling bad for the art because it was living in such a humid climate, another amazing brick arch would appear and...More

I loved this museum. It contained a good collection of modern South and Central American artists. Beautiful pieces by founder Enrigue Grau and Obregon. Well worth the time and small admission fee.
