I was surprised by this Museum. It doesn't seem like much but it does have very good displays and information about the Colombian Caribbean culture, on how it arose from a clash of cultures from Africa, Europe and American Indians. I very much enjoyed the videos on each indigenous tribe on this coast of the country. One of tour guides, Sergio, was really attentive and was well informed, he answered every single question I had. I highly recommend a visit to this Museum.

Went there with a few friends that are locals. We all learned a lot about Barranquilla, and the Caribbean area. The staff are very friendly and great tour guides.

The castles neatly kept and the area is beautiful. I'm not much on museums but I had to check it out I was not disappointed all the information translated both in English and Spanish gave me a great Insight on where we've come from since the Spanish invasion of Colombia

The museum gives you a great trip of the historical and cultural development of the Caribbean Region of Colombia, it's fauna an rich-full vegetation. Through videos and interactive rooms the museum displays the indigenous origins, the migratory influence, the rich fauna and flora and the culture. Starting with a room devoted to the Literature Nobel Price winner Gabriel Garcia-Marquez ending in an interactive room with natural size videos of dancers displaying the rich variety of music and dances of the Colombian Caribbean coast.
