One of Medellin's most famous 20th artists. The museum is his house, studio, and gallery holding many of his most important works that cover the whole of Colombian culture. Located in the barrio (Comuna 4). A memorable experience not soon forgotten.

The museum is an excellent place to explore Nel Gomez' paintings. I especially loved that the museum is placed in the middle of the "barrio popular". It really fits into the area and lets all of it shine.
