Holidays in Antioquia Museum

Holiday Travel Guide
Antioquia Museum which includes interior views and art

See works from Medellin’s renowned artists Pedro Nel Gómez and Fernando Botero in this enormous museum, which also displays artwork from around the globe.

Colombia’s second-oldest museum, the Antioquia Museum, is home to numerous temporary and permanent exhibitions displaying world-renowned works of art. Of particular note are the galleries dedicated to legendary local artists Pedro Nel Gómez and Fernando Botero. The museum also has many amenities, including a restaurant, souvenir store, beautiful courtyard and meeting rooms.

Before entering the museum, explore the collection of 23 bronze statues by Fernando Botero in Botero Plaza. These strangely proportioned sculptures are examples of Botero’s signature style of depicting both animals and humans as comically plump. Afterwards, visit the Botero Gallery, which contains additional statues and paintings by the Medellín artist. Wander through the 12 rooms that house the more than 100 pieces of art that Botero donated to the museum from his private collection. In the Pedro Nel Gómez exhibit, visitors can learn about the life and work of this famous muralist.

Immerse yourself in the artistic and cultural history of Colombia by investigating the museum’s collection of approximately 500 pieces of important Colombian artwork. The collection spans several centuries and includes paintings, sculptures, photographs and political cartoons. In the Sala de las Tres Culturas (Room of the Three Cultures), peruse more than 200 works made by Colombia’s indigenous peoples. Wander through the temporary exhibits, which contain pieces from internationally acclaimed artists.

If you don’t speak Spanish call ahead and arrange a tour of the museum with an English-speaking guide. Purchase mementoes at the souvenir shop on the first floor and then dine in the neighbouring museum restaurant.

The structure that houses the museum is the former site of the Palacio Municipal (City Hall). The museum is open every day. There is a charge for admission.

The Antioquia Museum is situated in Medellín’s Old Quarter. To get to the museum, ride the metro to the nearby Berrío Park stop or take a cab. After visiting the museum explore the surrounding area, which has restaurants, cafés, hotels and a university. A short walk away is Parque Bolivar, which is home to the Catedral Metropolitana as well as a lavish fountain.
