  • It is an interesting library, is located in an accessible location on the avenida 5, has two museums (natural sciences and abracadabra). You can request the keys of knowledge to receive event information and order books at a cost of $400, the Luis Angel Arango de Bogotá of the Banco de la República rich charge you much more (40,000, 70,000 0 100,000), a poor person is not going to invest 40,000 in check out books. The people who care are just friendly, I had a mishap by removing a few copies, the lady was furious for many copies claiming what had happened I make photocopies as permitted by copyright, I told him that was not true the law allows 40% of the text and the book not sold it in any country (national library; Lerner, Pan etc.) I think I was more furious at having to photocopy accustomed to very few leaves on the day.

  • Interesting library with historical expositions
  • Interactive Museum short: most of the items are out of service, others are in poor condition. Children of Cali deserve much more than these outdated elements. Children's library: there are no workshops or activities, staff is not aware of children, does not suggest readings or games, is as self-service. Points for improvement. Restaurant: visited him at 3 pm, although it was open, with personal "attending", on TV, does not sell or a red, no idea for what is open.
