“Very Nice!”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

As an English speaking person with limited Spanish, I would recommend getting the audio tour.

Beautifully done museum.

“A Terrific South American Museum”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

The museum is very well laid out with a great deal of history of Colombia and its people. For Spanish speaking people, it would be great. For English speaking people, there are virtually no English descriptions provided.

“Excelente visita”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

If you're visiting Barranquilla, you must visit this museum. It's very interactive and complete. It explains the history and the culture of the Colombian Caribean region.

“State of the art museum”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

The museum is great. The building is great and has a lot of interactive presentations. Its location is not the best in town but it is next to the metro station and taxis will pass across the park.

I am not giving 5 starts to it because:
1. There is no English information (there are bilingual guides)
2. There are no objects, just video installations
