We were in Medellin for four full days and had extra time so this museum was a nice use of that time. The museum has limited exhibition space and I understand it's hit or miss since they have rotating shows. We lucked out and really enjoyed a show of paintings by Colombian artist Debora Arango.

First of all, the service and attention at this museum is great. For those of us that don't speak Spanish, I was very appreciative of all the English they used throughout the museum. Most (if not all) was bilingual in English and Spanish which made me appreciate the excellent art even more than I expected. Its a very cute, well... More

This is a nice, modern museum with limited numbers of exhibits. Two of them interested me and were quite good. Another was somewhat boring and the fourth one did not catch my interest. From the numbers of folks at each exhibit the people there agreed with me on that point. The sad part is that there is room to show... More

The museum has got a new building just months ago...It is a nicely done expansion made to the old one. Here you can see a some of modern Colombian artists. Well located and nice city view from the last floor´s "Terraza". Nice "Artesanias de Colombia Gift Shop" just outside the museum. Even if prices are expensive you can get great... More

Excellent space to see contemporary conceptual art. Has about 6 small galleries. Well -curated exhibitions. Spend about an 60 minutes in the gallery and stay to enjoy the park, and surrounding areas. A bit of a hipster scene.

The recently expanded MAMM is a treat for those of us into modern art and going beyond Botero's influence on Medellín. I especially enjoyed the room reserved for Débora Arango (1907-2005), a courageous artist defying the limits for women artists of her time (btw, her reward is being pictured on Colombia's 2000 Peso note, the second lowest note). Also, the... More

A wonderful museum. When I visited they had exhibits that included Colombian modern artists across many different times and types of modern art. The gift shop is a great place to get a unique gift.

After being told by our mother that there were a lot of Latin American artists worth seeing, we decided to check out the MOMA in Medellin. Was 10000pesos to get in, and we definitely enjoyed ourselves. Not a huge museum (not like Tate Modern) but had some really good exhibitions, and the building was easy to use, not crowded, and...

I wasn't expecting modern art museums like Paris, New York, Madrid, but have to say this museum was average. It featured 4 exhibits by Colombian artists, 2 were interesting and 2 not so much. If you are in the area it's a good way to spend an hour, but I wouldn't go out of my way to visit. The building... More
