  • I loved the travel, site is completely historical, the building is architecturally beautiful, contains the history of our television, since beyond began and they were our first studies, also hosted Inravision (today Colombia signal). The exhibits that were very nice, interesting, with lots of history where you look at it, even in a room located seals gravure of many books produced for literacy and disclosure of our library. It would be interesting to retain a study of the era that began our television, teams likely to have out there, photographs and videos are also available, but it is essential that remains that so beautiful story for Colombians and that insurance it will be for foreign visitors.

  • Must-see for those who know Bogotá, not only by the documentary heritage which houses, in addition for its architecture and murals. There are often activities so visit can be extended to more that salas them :)
