It could be argued, although I'm not necessarily making this claim, that this is one of the most important places to visit and experience if you're learning about Latin American history. It was here, according to myth and fact, that the "cry for independence" was first raised. It was here the vase was shattered in that famous (in Colombia) moment in which the world changed and the chains of oppression with thrown off. In this museum the actual vase is on display--or what's left of it--and the interactive experience allows you to understand a bit more deeply what led to the creation of Gran-Colombia and the modern state of Colombia if not all of Latin America. While some things have English translations, a working understanding of Spanish would be helpful.
I love this place. I have to go back. Me fascino lo recomiendo
Nice overview of Colombian history
En mi opinión este museo tiene el potencial de ser mucho mejor pero si estuviese limitado de tiempo en mi visita a Bogotá; este es uno de los sitios que hubiese dejado por fuera.
Small but informative museum
