  • For a European without any Spanish language skills, the museum is interesting because of the costumes and visual materials but not very time consuming since nearly every description is in Spanish. For...  more »
  • It makes sad neglect that parts have. From models to scale weapons, going by the number of closed rooms, it is fortunate that is free to enter. Missing curated by Museum, missing documentation, lack something that leads to who visits him. There is much appeal in the courtyard which can be seen from the street. And enter and not there is nothing or no one that you indicate or explain what are those old irons that are watching. What disappointment.

  • The House where he works was built on the grounds of the House of the Moneda.Originalmente ran the engineering faculties. Today you can access throughout history military old through the collection of weapons, uniforms, aircraft, helicopters and bombs. It is an exceptional experience that varies each time because they have holograms, summaries, explanations. The guide is essential. Take you in order and you would like to repeat, delay you. There are real treasures like the awards, the explanatory posters. The collection of knives and revolvers is great. Only a part of what is seen. It is worth, learn better.

  • Free entrance. Very organized and clean. The complete collection of coats of arms and flags of Colombia since its consolidation is. In addition the complete collection of uniforms and accessories used by the military (army, Navy, air force). Sculptures and paintings of the founding fathers of independence. There are outdoor and indoor rooms. Ideal for children over six years of age, adolescents and adults. The attention from the military is spectacular, with them you can talk about their experience and vocation. They are very friendly and kind. He is allowed to take photos without flash.
