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.

  • Is a small museum, but it's worth to see the Colombian art apart from the colonial period. Found it quite valid.

  • On the occasion of unveiling a picture of wrestler and tireless Vice Chairman of MAM recognition deserved in his room and another trio of creative photography "Gabito" as they affectionately called the Nobel Prize of literature that came to the reception to adorn the site and honor him. Homage to both.

  • Small museum and well organized. The building is internally beautiful. A few paintings by some national artists. Beautiful sculptures that are worth. The photographs of artist Cecilia that has a space reserved.
