Bogota’s Museum of Modern Art, affectionately referred to as MAMBO, offers an entirely different experience than the capital’s other museums. The sleek building, designed by Colombian architectural icon Rogelio Salmona in the 1980s offers four floors of clean-cut galleries hung with outstanding 20th-century art.
While the museum focuses on the Colombian masters of the last 40 years, a world-class permanent collection includes famous pieces from international figures such as Dali, Picasso, Otero and Andy Warhol, represented here with his famous “Marilyn” silkscreens. Modern design and photography are also well documented in this most thought-provoking of museums.
Temporary exhibitions, artsy films, workshops and other activities are almost always on offer; check their official website (Spanish only) to see what’s on when you’re in town.
