An incredible museum - the paintings on the ceiling and the walls are breathtaking. It's well preserved and user friendly, we can read about the exhibits by using the touching screen showing detailed information in English. A must visit in Bogota.

Personally I enjoyed this more than the famed Gold Museum. The interior is both beautiful and interesting, with high-tech touch screens that provides information on the art and crypt in the church.
