I always come back to this museum BUT if definitely needs a sponsor for A/C. The only way to maintain the paintings is having adequate temperature and humidity control. Love Grau's work and a couple of Obregon pieces. Temporary exhibitions are always nice to see.

The architecture alone makes this museum worth visiting. I enjoyed the exhibits as well. This is definitely a worthy stop while visiting Cartagena.

This is a small museum with two floors. The first is the permanent collection and the second floor is a visiting collection. This is a nice local museum, with interesting art. Not on the level of the museums in Bogota, but we enjoyed our visit
