Museo Casa de la Memoria reviews
It was an interesting (and free) visit, but I didn't have headphones and it seemed to lack a general narrative, it felt more like odd seperate stories. more »
The Museo Casa de la Memoria is a treasure-trove of Colombia's history. The main displays provide informative, if broad-strokes, overviews of different aspects of the history of the city, region, and.... more »
A very important museum for the story it tells, a must go if you pass by Medellin. The museum is modern and really well done. Entrance is free. You get to download an audio-guide for free on your smartphone, available in both Spanish and English. Note that despite the exhibits descriptions being written in Spanish, English and French, some exhibits contains lots of Spanish only materials (mostly newspapers and radio and TV archives). But lots of testimonials are subtitled in English. Don't miss the temporary exhibitions that offer a artsy look on this story.
Very well designed and displayed, and interactive. Free to visit and great app for the non-Spanish, but be warned the content is likely to touch you at the core.
