  • It is a good Museum which is undoubtedly necessary in the city, I think that for children is quite good in question of learning and achieving communication with the region of a fun and entertaining way. To improve I think that we need much in terms of content, the Caribbean region has too much material that can be used in the Museum.

  • The Museum Unveils part of Caribbean culture, highlights the Costeña idiosyncrasy, music and the costa's profile. Located in the historic centre of the city.

  • There are many cultural spaces in Barranquilla. This is one of them and you can not go without visiting it. So just to know him. Exhibitions could be better, but it is understandable that it is part of a whole process. They are on the right track.

Where to stay in Barranquilla

Equipped to host the largest festival in the country, Barranquilla has a good set of accommodations catering to a range of tastes, budgets, and interests. Either side of Carrera 46, find pristine chain hotels and smaller independent options with extensive amenities, such as rooftop swimming pools, modern spas, and popular restaurants. Look to the more residential areas for budget-friendly guesthouses, and consider booking a rental apartment if planning on a longer stay. Economical options cluster around Paseo Bolivar, but note the area can be rather sketchy. Be sure to reserve well in advance if planning on visiting for Mardi Gras in February.
