  • I never imagined how many native tribes live in this rain of Colombia! it was amazing to learn about them and their culture. Colombia is extremely diverse and I'm proud of having a mix of different cultures
  • It isn't as English-friendly as I thought it would be. All of the floors are in Spanish, and we speak intermediate. Difficult for kids with a lower level Spanish, though. The gift shop was reasonably priced, but they could have so much more to offer. On the bottom floor of the museum is Music/Expression. Very cleverly put together and needs no translation.
