  • Is a great place to learn something about Colombian history, Villa de Leyva's history and also Luis Alberto Acuña's work and contributions.
  • Brief but packed with great art influenced by a massive variety of experiences in the artist's life. A must visit for any art lover

  • Around Villa de Leyva and discovery at the suggestion of the guide we headed to this museum ... it was a really nice find! A multifaceted character, eclectic ... a well-rounded artist who did not know, but that pleasantly surprised us for its production (painter, writer, collector, musician ...). Worth the visit with guide in Spanish or English on request for only a few pounds more (3000 pesos). You will be amazed, albeit in full simplicity of the House made Museum.

  • Besides knowing the beautiful house located in the plaza mayor of Villa de Leyva, once inhabited by the teacher Luis Alberto Acuña, important artist of the 20th century, you can visit an interesting collection of works of art of his own. It has a beautiful courtyard inhabited by his sculptures and framed by murals depicting aspects of the past of the region where today is located Villa de Leyva, including the cosmogony of the muiscas that populated the area before the conquest. #LetsGuide
