Museo de la Independencia Casa del Florero, Bogota

3.9
Learn about the "cry of independence" at Museo de la Independencia Casa del Florero, housed in a colonial building of great historical importance to Bogota. The story goes that just after Napoleon overcame Spain in 1810, a local creole named Antonio Morales came to the house and demanded an ornate vase from the Spanish owner. This led to a tussle in the street that had the butterfly effect of spurring a national rebellion. Tour the museum and look for the vase in question, broken during the fight but still on display here. Pay special attention to the building's Arabic-Andalusian style.

  • The Museum of independence - the vase House is a historic house (well-preserved), where Colombians of the past began to build its independence from the Spanish Viceroyalty. It is a beautiful and interesting history (and that you read on your own), that is turned off by the excess of personal comments made by the "historical commentator" that performs the guided tour in the place. The "historical commentator", also speaking of interesting topics such as the Galleon San Jose without having idea what actually is happening with this historic treasure, again, more personal comments. The Museum Shop is a disgrace, normal items with high costs. They charge you $8 for a fridge magnet where the resolution of the image is horrible. It has no home-related books. I not return unless they implement the use of audio-guides or hire certified guides.

  • It could be argued, although I'm not necessarily making this claim, that this is one of the most important places to visit and experience if you're learning about Latin American history. It was here, according to myth and fact, that the "cry for independence" was first raised. It was here the vase was shattered in that famous (in Colombia) moment in which the world changed and the chains of oppression with thrown off. In this museum the actual vase is on display--or what's left of it--and the interactive experience allows you to understand a bit more deeply what led to the creation of Gran-Colombia and the modern state of Colombia if not all of Latin America. While some things have English translations, a working understanding of Spanish would be helpful.
  • I love this place. I have to go back. Me fascino lo recomiendo
  • Cool!
  • Nice overview of Colombian history
  • It is a very nice place, this very well controlled the entrance of visitors allowing you to walk with peace of mind and take the time to appreciate each exhibition, only I miss the exhibition guiafa.

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.
