Disappointed with this museum. Not very big and to little to see. Exhibitions were nice but limited. Probably can see it all in less than 2 hours.

When we visited the place there were two exhibitions, one about space and one about visual art in the 70s , ok, but we needed just around 30 minutes - inform yourself at the website if it is worth a visit! The place is huge, so I guess they have more to offer from time to time

Always enjoy a visit to a Gallery of Modern Art. The limited work on display was great, but it's really only a 45 min visit. 2 long galleries, cafe and gift shop. We took the time to walk from El Pablado so it at least felt like a morning out and about. No English on work, but that's fine -... More

I enjoyed the exhibits at the Modern Art Museum, but I must say it is quite small. The descriptions are only in spanish, which was disappointing for me, as much of the "cartoon" exhibit contained dialogue. I was done in 25 minutes.

It is very small but well curated, cleanly designed in a former of industrial building. A very nice restaurant next door. Well conceived exhibits at the level of any modern art museum around the world PLUS friendly staff and a nice store with plenty of Colombian art

I really enjoyed my visit to the Museo de Arte Moderno de Medellin. Before this trip I was not so familiar with the art of Botero, but this was obviously a great introduction and view of his work, which I really enjoyed. The other collection of modern art also had some very cool pieces for me. One draw-back is that... More

I very much enjoy visiting museums of contemporary art as I feel they are a living testament of local culture and history. This display takes all of 10 minutes to complete without a single item holding ones attention for more that an instant.. Although the buildings pillars adorned with the sponsors name did stop me for a while. I took... More

You can probably see the collection in the Museo de Arte Moderno in about one hour. I understand the exhibitions change about every two months. And the works I saw were very interesting. Also - my guide book said that the museum is open on Mondays. Not true - that's the one day it is closed.
