A museum of great significance for Bolivarian people (in the proper sense) to admire the house where Simon Bolivar, liberator of 5 nations, lived his first years... History all over!!

It is the house where Simon Bolivar (Venezuela's, Colombia's Ecuador's Bolivia's liberator) was born probably one of the few relevant historical places for an international traveller. It is free to visit

This is a very important historical place for Venezuelans, It is a beautiful Place, but Please!!!! NEVER GO ALONE, Tell a friend to take you. This place is located in the Heart of the Capital and its dangerous if you get lost around.

Again, as with the Ciudad Universitaria de Caracas, this is a very important place and is not a hotel or a shop. This is where Simon Bolivar was born!, the man who freed Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Panama, Peru and Venezuela ... If there's a place that tourists are going to want to know in the Capital of this country, it... More

It is very interesting to learn about the history of Bolivar. This was the place where he was born. It is well preserved and is free. The area is not very safe.

Museums are always a thrill! It was a positive experience to visit this museum in Caracas. It is safer to get there with a registered taxi from your hotel.

These 2 well kept establishments are in the center of Caracas near the governmental buildings. Entrance is free and they are worth visiting
