Medellín Modern Art Museum (Museo de Arte Moderno) Tours

star-5
2 reviews
Medellín Modern Art Museum (Museo de Arte Moderno)
Medellin, birthplace of sculptor Fernando, Botero, loves modern art. The remodeled Medellín Modern Art Museum (MAMM) debuted in 2009 in a converted steel mill with a theater to show independent films and lots of space to show off its growing collection, including works by local painter Débora Arango.
 
The Basics
Medellin offers a rich assortment of art museums, and the Medellin Museum of Modern Art has one of the top collections. A new wing houses pieces from the museum’s permanent collection, while the older part of the building features changing temporary exhibitions, so there’s always something new to see. Sightseeing and museum tours of Medellin typically include MAMM, as well as the Museum of Antioquia, San Pedro Cemetery Museum, and the Castillo Museum.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • MAMM is a must-visit for art lovers and architecture buffs.
  • Join a guided tour to learn more about the collection.
  • Photography is allowed within the museum, but remember to turn your flash off.
  • The museum space is wheelchair accessible.

How to Get There
MAMM is situated in the Ciudad del Rio area near the El Poblado neighborhood. The easiest way to get there is to take the Medellin metro to Estación Industriales. Several public buses stop near the museum as well.
 
When to Get There
The museum is open Tuesday to Sunday year-round, with shorter hours on weekends. Admission is free in the evening of the last Friday of each month, but expect the museum to be crowded during this time.
 
Exploring Ciudad del Rio
The neighborhood that houses MAMM is also one of Medellín’s most exciting areas of urban renewal. The Ciudad del Rio was once an industrial area dominated by iron mills before it fell into decay. Today, the area features art galleries, green parks, modern apartments, and trendy restaurants. If you’re hungry, be sure to check out the Mercado del Rio.
Address: Ciudad del Rio, Carrera 64B, 51 - 64, Medellin, Colombia
Admission: Varies
