  • Enjoyed visiting this gallery (like the punctured metal exterion) - some interesting pieces and a good shop! Even bought some music CDS  more »
  • Many exhibitions closed, though entry fee charged to see 3 rooms, and be followed around be suspicious staff... art was ok, but not enough to warrent the fee.  more »
  • Only one of the two floors with showrooms was accessible, has paid off yet. Many exciting works of Colombian artists of the 80s up 00s. Leafy part several terraces with great views of Medellín. The cinema in the same building visited then spontaneously, great selection of films with different topics, entrance very cheap (OmU, however only Thu-Sun). Conclusion: this museum would recommend if one spends enough time in Medellín, but otherwise is the Museo de Antioquia more important and watchable.

  • That's a nice place to take a point of view about de local modern and past art. It's interesting that you can find different art styles, iconic artist of the city from 1940 to now and good released spaces. It's sad that this museum facilities are not prepared for big format art pieces. Usually the time to walk all the spaces could be under 2 hours. Don't hesitate to go to the roof and enjoy the good view of the city.
  • It pains me to give such a poor rating to an art museum, but it was really that disappointing. It's a lot of empty space with very little art on display. I was excited to see the Debora Arango collection, because I think she was amazing, and I've read that she donated over 200 of her paintings to the museum. Unfortunately, they had only 3 on display. ☹️. There was an interesting and thoughtful special exhibit on parrots and the Araceibo radio telescope
  • Mediocre art in a building with more security guards than visitors. They don’t have much on display. The terrace offers a decent view.
  • Visited a wonderfully diverse exhibit on sexuality, gender, and human dignity. Gorgeous view from the rooftop garden. Loved it!
  • Spent a couple of hours meandering through the various salons and walked away fulfilled. It was recommended to take the elevator to the fifth floor and work our way down. I appreciated descriptions offered in English so that my children could understand the work they were viewing.
