“A decent museum for art lovers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

I spent about 30-40 minutes visiting Cartagena's Museum of Modern Art. Admission was 5,000 COP. The museum was mounting a photography exhibit on the ground floor and four Peruvian surrealist painters on the 2nd floor. This is a modest museum that also contains a modest permanent collection. A good place to get your art fix and keep the art community thriving. I was very satisfied with the experience.

“A welcome rest from the heat”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

The museum won't blow you away, but if you're been walking around the historic center for hours, under the sun, this is a great place to stop for 30 min and see some modern Colombian art.

“Beautiful building, varied art”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

The museum of Modern Art is housed in a beautiful historic building in the Centro. The contrast between the old and the modern was striking. Some of the works of art were incredible. Others seemed like works that didn't represent the best of the artists. There is a good deal of sculpture that mostly was lovely. Overall, I liked my visit to the Museo, though it did not take a great deal of time to see the entire collection. It is worth a short visit when you are in the walled city, Centro.
