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.

I enjoyed this building and the current show that is a retrospective of works shown here before from 1990 to the present. The place has a lovely feel. However take note that it is very small, only four or five rooms, so making a special trip may disappoint some. I personally enjoyed it as I prefer small contemplative locales. I... More

Took us 1/2 hour max to see a handful of really pretentious pieces. No Botero on show. What a disappointing museum experience considering some of the other excellent museums we've visited in Colombia, not to mention modern art museums in other locations. The entrance fee is definitely unmerited.

While not a big museum, this institution is well laid out, with some interesting pieces and worth spending an hour or so visiting, especially if you are looking for an indoor activity on a hot day.
