    Vivir la historia
    Es un lugar que inspira respeto. Esta casa Museo esta llena de todos los detalles, de lo que fue la via de Nuestro Libertador Simon Bolivar. Se ha guardado y conservado con mucho sigilo documentos de se gesta emancipadora llevada a cabo en los paises libertados por nuestro Padre de la Patria. Hay que visitarlo. Enseñarle a los niños estos valores.

    It's a very interesting visit if you are into history, if you get a good guide you will learn lots about the history of this country and why they call it Republica Bolivariana. It's interesting to see the wealth El Libertador was born into and to learn how his life developed.

These 2 small museums are worth a look as you wander around the historical centre of Caracas. The display on the exhumation of Bolivar's remains is really quite appalling.

Even though most of the decoration of the house are not the real that was used by Simon Bolivar, this house is suposse to be the place where He was born!

You can have a glimpse of what the houses in Venezuela were made during the beginning of the past century.

The House is located near the "Centro"or downtown. Near the Bolivar Square.

Be very careful with your cameras, or watches. Don't bring any flashy jewelry there. We suggest you to take the subway to get there.

the very hostorical heart of Caracas, accessible by the tube (Metro) station Capitolio, you'll visit before a small house where Simon Bolivar stayed just in front of a trendy bar where you can enjoy a home made beer, and some meters after the house where the big man is born. Gorgeous paintings, sculptures and do not miss the stables and check the way they had to recuperate the rain water !

In downtown Caracas almost everything is ugly except for this place. The set up is good, the art is good and the building is in great conditions.

To be honest i didn't know anything about Simon Bolivar before i went to South America. I found this place fascinating. Lots of history to see and learn about. A great free place to go to if visiting Caracas, with another museum close by. As mentioned in my other reviews just be aware and careful when walking around.

El complejo es pequeño de visita rápida, se observa la estructura típica de casas coloniales españolas y muchos objetos pertenecientes a Simón Bolívar (libertador).

The complex is very small so is very quickly, you can see the colonial structure tipic in those days and a lot of things related to the libertador (Simon Bolivar and family).
