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.

It was very interesting to go there. A good piece of history - and completely free of charge. No fees! If you happen to spend some time in Caracas it's one recommendation to do.

If you are interested in Simon Bolivar, this is one you should see. A good compliment to visiting his mausoleum. The tour can take 20-30 minutes
