  • Really good place to spend an hour. There's a lot of hardware to see and lots of the descriptions are in English. You'll also learn something about the country at the same time. The displays are a little dated and there's a lot of personnel watching you. These people could be doing more with their time that checking WhatsApp and cleaning the displays instead.

Where to stay in Bogota

Many visitors to Bogota stay in La Candelaria, a colonial-era neighborhood in the city center where you can find plenty of decent hostels and mingle with tourists from around the globe. Staying in this area also puts you within walking distance of the city's major museums and best nightlife options. If you prefer to sleep in a quieter area and visit this busy district during the day, consider accommodations in the northern section of the city, which includes the upscale neighborhood Zona T.
