  • I had not had the opportunity and pleasure to write about our visit to the Museum of the Caribbean, which is a magical place and a must-stop for anyone visiting Barranquilla. Starting with the personnel that work for the same which in its totality is committed, friendly, charismatic people, a wonderful experience the journey through all its rooms where he shows us the yesterday, today and the future of the Colombian Caribbean, which is an important part of its construction as a country. There is no more than congratulate all the Staff of the Museum and urge them to follow with work so splendidly... A big hug friends.

  • 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.
