Great museum. Very informative. Would definitely recommend it. I would suggest they also have the information in English as it is a tourist destination and they should cater for this.

In this museum hardly any exhibits are shown. It consists mainly of screens and projections bringing you a little bit closer to the culture of Colombia. You need to speak Spanish to follow the movies and projections shown. Only few English subtitles.

This is a must when visiting Barranquilla, very different from conventional museums, easy to get to, right next to a BRT system and close to the Intendencia Fluvial Building and Edificio de la Aduana, both beautiful city buildings.

Gives you a very good idea of customs in the coastal area of Colombia, specifically the Atlantic coast. It has many interactive activities. They recently invested in new A/C.
