As a family of four (my husband and our two adult daughters) we visited this exhibition in December 2017 and were very impressed. It's an excellent and vast collection of various means of transportation worth spending an afternoon or even a day to look at it closely. We are very grateful to Mr. Jose Guillermo Pardo for his passionate and detailed tour and historical knowledge. It is this type of exhibits that make me very proud of my hometown, Cali. Keep up the excellent work and I hope the city of Cali can provide additional funds to expand the exhibition to fit more airplanes and trains.

La Casa de las Piedritas

Reviewed By curtdo - Atlanta, United States

We went to La Casa de las Piedritas after a menu del dia in Envigado. We walked across town about 25 minutes from where we were and it was not a problem. The house is actually not very far from the Principle Park of Envigado. This was a very interesting stone house that the owner has been building for 37 years. He and his wife greeted the visitors very warmly and gave the tour of their private home. They even offered candy and coffee at the end. You can tip at the end if you like, but there is not push for it.

This was perhaps the most personal and touching presentation I’ve ever heard at a museum. Shenandoah is a young American woman who married a local school teacher. They turned part of his family home into a memorial museum. It’s also the site where some of the bloodiest conflicts between guerrilla groups and paramilitary armies took place in the very recent past. Shenandoah’s presentation of those bloody conflicts sets out a very nice overview that helps one understand both the modern history of this country and the present economic and tourist dynamic of this fascinating place. Donations accepted and you will come away from the a much deeper appreciation for where you are.

Catedral de Sal de Zipaquira

Beautiful completely carved in Salt Cathedral is unique in its kind and presents visitors a majesty unparalleled. 180 meters underground lies a place away from everyday life invites reflection, self-discovery and inner encounter with the spiritual part.

Reviewed By Nekoneelz - Bogota, Colombia

I'm not a very religious person, however art and history has always interested me, so this place was an unexpected treat! Id advise anyone who hasn't been here before to visit. It's less that 2hrs away from Bogota, and the bus ride there is cheap (TM to Portal Norte and then s bus to Zipa until the centro). Entrance to the mines is a bit pricey, cheaper if you show residency (lucky me) , but worth it. Packages are available, and there are restaurants and gift shops

Gold Museum (Museo del Oro)

The Banco de la República Gold Museum houses one of the most important collections of pre-Hispanic metallurgy in the world. As its history, which dates back to 1939, has unfolded, so this institution has become a symbol of Colombia's cultural memory. Its golden exhibition, fully renewed in November, 2008, is a place you cannot miss in your next trip to Bogota.

Reviewed By VictoriaCooper7 - Wales, United Kingdom

This museum was interesting and well set out - taking you on a journey from how the gold objects were made to their significance in the complex belief systems of the various native groups. The very last offering section of the museum (top floor) was amazing so make sure to leave enough time for it. Whilst there are small explanatory sections of text, I'd highly recommend getting an audio guide as it really set the scene and explained the objects in depth with very interesting points on their cultural context. There are numbers in the very top left hand corners of the displays which you tap into the audio guide (just in case you like me have basic Spanish and don't understand the instructions at the front desk!)

Museo Botero del Banco de la Republica

Great little museum containing works of renowned Colombian painter and sculptor, Fernando Botero.

Reviewed By TallTravels29 - San Jose, United States

I’ve been to museums all over the world but none with a collection as charming and bountiful (pun fully intended) as this one. Botero’s voluptuous heroines and portly heroes jump off the canvas in exuberant delight and my personal favourite the Mona Lisa should truly replace DaVinci’s version as the world’s greatest masterpiece. The rest of the collection wasn’t pretty strong too - Picasso, Chagall, Renoir - I was impressed at the range of artists. This is truly worth a visit.

Plaza de Mercado de Paloquemao

Reviewed By CaboSanLucasCocinera

We're Mexican, which means we walk markets, which we proceeded to do all over Colombia, and Bogota's Paloquemao is the Big Enchilada! The amazing variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, eggs, meats, flowers and on and on, put us in mind of Mexico City's La Merced. That's high praise. Colombia has excellent artisanal sugar, panela. The fresh blackberries brought tears to my eyes! The aisles are spacious and clean for a big market. If you are a food person, this is the place!
