Museums are always a thrill! It was a positive experience to visit this museum in Caracas. It is safer to get there with a registered taxi from your hotel.

El complejo es pequeño de visita rápida, se observa la estructura típica de casas coloniales españolas y muchos objetos pertenecientes a Simón Bolívar (libertador).

Excellent museum about Simon Bolivar who is one of the most important historical figures from South American history. Very interesting and well presented exhibits. The house next door was his family home as a child.
