Museo de Arte Moderno, Cartagena

(3.7/5 based on 65+ reviews on the web)
Consisting of two buildings built two centuries apart (in the 17th and 19th centuries, respectively), Museo de Arte Moderno entices visitors every year with its collections of important modern Colombian and Caribbean works. Though a small museum, it offers an insight into local and regional art and artists. Expectations should be tempered as the facilities may not live up to other experiences of more modern museums; there is no cafe onsite and the building is not air-conditioned. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Cartagena holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Museo de Arte Moderno and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
