All content is in Spanish only, not English. I don’t know if it has improved in recent years. It is a complete introduction to the historical and cultural traditions of the Caribbean. Interesting.
I am surprised by this museum. It doesn't seem to be a lot, but it does have very good exhibits and information about Colombian Caribbean culture. How did it arise from the cultural conflict between Africa, Europe and American Indians? I really like the videos of every indigenous tribe on the coast of the country. The tour guide Sergio was very attentive and knowledgeable. He answered every question I had. I highly recommend visiting this museum.
One of the few attractions in Barranquilla and the first regional museum in Colombia. Located to the south of the city. The entire museum has about five floors, each with a different theme, and the surrounding themes are various Colombian Caribbean cultures. There is a floor dedicated to the Nobel Prize winner Gabriel García Márquez who was born and lived in Barranquilla and throughout the Caribbean. There are free explanations at designated times every day, but all exhibits are introduced in Spanish. Those who don’t mind language barriers can also feel the atmosphere.
The front glass curtain wall is black with the combination of external beams and concrete walls. It is very modern and prominent in this city, and it has become the most famous modern landmark in the area. Some documents and video materials in Spanish, and even folk musical instruments are excellent exhibits. It is also the most humane science education base in the Colombian coastal area.
