Owner description: Colombia's oldest museum holds a vast collection of archeological artifacts, as well as modern art. The building itself is interesting—it's a former prison and many of the galleries are inside former prison cells.

It's in a jail! There's Botero, mummies, jail cells, and many historical artifacts. Indian tribes, the Magdalena river. And it's FREE!!

Extensive collection of art and best of all it's free. A great way to spend a rainy afternoon. There are also several Botero paintings.

Great collection in an interesting layout. Good central local near many other important sites. Connected to the Botero Museum.

This is a well laid out museum with many great displays. The building on the outside and inside is absolutely beautiful. It is laid out well and allows you to ramble through time enjoying the many exhibits and displays. And, what about that 750kg meteorite that you can actually touch. It's well worth a visit!

The highlight of this venue is the art exhibition in the old chapel of representative Colombian artists, as well as the simple-but-nice outdoor gardens. The balance of the exhibits portray, rather boringly, national archeological history.
