Delve into Medellin’s rich cultural heritage on a half-day tour of the city’s best museums. Alongside your knowledgeable guide, you’ll learn about Medellin’s radical transformation — from a perilously dangerous city to a thriving metropolis — and visit the San Pedro Cemetery Museum and the Museum of Antioquia. See pieces by Fernando Botero in the Museum of Modern Art, and admire the Gothic architecture and exotic gardens of the Castillo Museum. Upgrade your tour to include convenient hotel pickup and drop-off in Medellin.
Visiting Medellín’s museums with a local guide is the perfect introduction to the city's culture. The inclusion of entrance fees and the option to include hotel pickup make this a convenient way to spend half a day in Medellín.
Greet your guide at your Medellin hotel (if option selected), or a prearranged point, and start exploring the city’s cultural treasures.
The first stop of the museum tour is El Castillo Museum — a grand Gothic castle that harbors relics from Medellin’s richest families. Marvel at elaborate tapestries and stained glass windows before proceeding to Medellin’s Modern Art Museum.
Here, you’ll see contemporary artwork by prominent Latin American painters and learn about Medellin’s burgeoning modern art scene. During a tour of the 19th-century San Pedro Cemetery, you’ll visit the grand tombs of important Colombian figures.
Learn about significant figures in Colombian literature, economics and politics before concluding at the Antioquia Museum — home to countless paintings and sculptures by Fernando Botero, a Medellin-born artist.
Bid your guide farewell and enjoy transport back to your Medellin hotel if the option was selected.
Excellent guide of great knowledge. Very enjoyable tour.
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
