  • Preferred. You should go early because the sector where it is located is dangerous. It runs through in 2 hours approximately. The kitchen of the Museum sells very rich cuisine. You should visit it

  • A place where we appreciate UNESCO Caribbean, from landscapes, music, gastronomy and literature. Fascinating. Do not let go.

  • At first I expected a simple place, but since that was the projection of the Gabriel García Márquez work was impacted; travel is comfortable, the spaces are wide and displays description is clear. The staff is very friendly.

  • I had read so much about this Museum, but it was a little disappointing. While physically a large museum, each floor is only half filled and provides a moderate amount of information. Nothing is in English, so if you don't speak Spanish, you're out of luck.
  • Beautiful Building, and well designed exhibits.
  • Espectacular.
  • Lots of interesting information. It makes you take your appreciation of the Caribbean area, with all its customs, its great diversity of cultures, flora, fauna, gastronomy, etc. I will appreciate less digital exhibitions, fewer screens and texts, and more physical things, but still worth going around it.
