This is a museum you can do very quickly just to learn about Colombian textiles and dresses. It is clean and well preserved. But there are better museums to visit if you are short of time.

This was a small museum that I accidentally walked into. I think the admission was 1,000 pesos (less than 40 cents), so I figured it couldn't hurt to check it out. They did a good job of displaying various styles of dress from all over...More

The museum is very close to the Teatro Colon and the Casa de Moneda museum in the Candelaria area. The Spanish required people of different social status and racial groups to dress in specific costumes and there is an extensive display of these here. Also...More
