  • Great, interesting and inspiring museum. Well done! It's small but definitely worth to visit. Thank you Medellin.
  • I loved this museum. Small, but very well done. Very informative.

  • Great experience and well done museum. Small but very well done and worth a trip.
  • Excellent very clean place.
