Your personalized tour of Medellín's museums begins with pickup at your hotel (if option selected), and explores the city's many cultural collections.

Your first stop is El Castillo Museum (The Castle) to explore the ornate collection of tapestries, stained glass, and other relics of one of Medellín's richest and most prestigious families. Next, view international and Latin American contemporary art at the Modern Art Museum.

Take a step back in time at the 19th-century San Pedro Cemetery as you admire the elaborate mausoleums of important Colombian figures from the world of literature, economics, politics and commerce that helped shape Colombia’s second largest city.

Camilo was a fine and friendly guide. We enjoyed our afternoon with him very much. When the Museo de Arte Moderno was closed for changing of exhibits, he substituted Pueblito Paisa and El Castillo which more than made up for our not seeing "El MAMM". R and K Neuhoff
