Simón Bolívar Birthplace House (Casa Natal & Museo Bolivar) Tours

Housed in an elegant 17th-century colonial house hidden away in Caracas’ historic quarter, the Simón Bolívar Birthplace House is a worthy tribute to one of South America’s most iconic revolutionaries. The striking building has a dual claim to fame, firstly for being among the few remaining colonial-era houses in Caracas and secondly as the birthplace and childhood home of Venezuela's second president and ‘El Libertador’, Simón Bolívar.

Opening its doors to the public in 1921 and listed as a National Monument in 2002, the Simón Bolívar Birthplace House now houses two of Venezuela's most fascinating museums – the 
Casa Natal (Birth House) and the Museo Bolivar (Bolívar Museum). The Casa Natal is reconstructed in period style and features an impressive display of Venezuelan artworks, depicting Bolivar and the Venezuelan War of Independence. The adjoining Museo Bolivar is equally interesting, containing a large collection of memorabilia, personal items and documents, plus military uniforms and weapons, and even the baptismal font in which Bolivar was baptized.
