  • It's a very dynamic and multimedia, although small in dimension, space so it might disappoint you. But as its name implies, it is a room where you will find the story, characters and music that make the very own barranquilla Carnival. The fisfrute seriously.

  • Little gem of a museum. Informative and especially great for children -- many hands on actives for them. 
  • Because many city itself is associated with Carnival, Carnival Museum was opened here. Well worth a visit. Interesting exposition.
