Bogota Colombia Museums
Several readers have asked for some of the best museums in other cities in Colombia, and we have already reported on the good museums of Medellin. In this article we would like to highlight the museums we visited during our tour of Bogota.
Hopefully you enjoyed exploring the exhibits of the museums of Peru and Ecuador, and we will see what Colombia and Brazil have to offer next. There are some incredible museums in Colombia or Brazil that you can visit if you dream of a South American vacation. First of all we visited the area where the Gold Museum is located, but the entrance to the museum is free. The National Bank of Colombia is managed by the Colombian Government, with its headquarters in Bogota and offices in the city centre.
In addition, this museum is one of the best in Bogota because it has a collection of artefacts from Colombian history, culture and art. The museum also contains the remains of some of Colombia's most important historical figures, such as Pablo Escobar, Juan Manuel Santos and Juan Carlos Vazquez.
The Banco la Republica has six other museums in the city of Bogota, such as the National Museum, the Museo de los Deportes and the Museum of the Republic, which are used to display its large collection. This museum has Colombia's most valuable collection, which includes more than 100,000 works of art, works from around the world, and artefacts from Colombia's history.
There is much more to see in Colombia, and everything you can find in our guide, but we would love to read about the experiences you have had in these museums and others you have visited in Bogota, be here.
Our group visited the Gold Museum, housed in a colonial house that has served as the archdiocese of the city since 1955. This museum is a work of art, there are over 6,000 of them, and they are A must if you visit the cities of Bogota. Located in the historic city center, in one of the colonial houses that served as the archdiocese of the city until 1955, it houses some of the most important cultural and historical sites in Colombia. For more information on the history of this museum and other museums in Colombia, read our article ARTBO WEEKEND: Undiscovered Museums.
The museum is considered a museum by the city of Medellin, but only lovers of Colombian history will find it interesting enough to visit. It is very nicely chunky and there is no information in English, and there are not very many exhibits to see inside.
The Museo Nacional may have some cool exhibits, but art lovers should head to the Botero Museum first, and history buffs should check out the Independence Museum on July 20. There are better museums in Bogota, so if you're not fluent in Spanish, don't miss this one.
If you are visiting the Gold Museum in Bogota for the first time, be prepared for the incredible collection of gold, silver and other precious metals in the museum's collection. Don't miss your chance to learn about this breathtakingly brilliant piece of Colombian history. The Gold Museum can be visited free of charge at the Museo Nacional on July 20 and 23, and on August 1 and 2.
This quirky museum is one of the best museums in Bogota and offers something truly unique with its unique collection of gold, silver and other precious metals as well as a variety of historical artifacts.
If you are travelling from Medellin, you should greatly enrich the Museo de Antioquia and if you have only one day, I would suggest you visit. It is certainly not the largest museum in the Colombian capital, but it is an impressive museum and has different exhibits than elsewhere. If you have only visited one church in your time in Bogota, you can make sure it is in the Santa Clara Museum.
Another museum I have not been able to visit is the Colonial Museum, which is closed for renovation and will be closed on Monday, and the Military Museum, which is also closed if you try to visit on a Monday. I have included these museums in my list of the top 15 things to do in Bogota, Colombia, and they are considered a must for tourists visiting Bogota. You can also visit a few museums such as La Candelaria or the National Museum of Art and Design, the Museum de la Cienfuegos de Bogotas and the library of the Colombian Academy of Sciences.
The Museum of Contemporary Art Bogota, also known as MAC, is located in the heart of the city, at the crossroads of La Candelaria de la Cienfuegos de Bogotas and El Camino Real. The National Museum of Colombia is the largest museum of art and design in Colombia and the second largest in Latin America. This art museum (also called MAMU) is located near the old town of Bogotá, LaCandelarias.
