Fachada Museo Nacional de Colombia 

National Museum of Colombia


The National Museum of Colombia has built a collection of more than 20,000 objects that are symbols of national history and heritage. The collections include remains of the first inhabitants and material culture of prehispanic societies, objects from current indigenous and afrocolombian ethnography, evidence of different periods of the nation's history, and works of art that range from the colonial period through the works of 'the first modern' artists: Fernando Botero, Alejandro Obregón, Guillermo Wiedemann, Juan Antonio Roda, Eduardo Ramírez Villamizar, Edgar Negret and Enrique Grau.
 
The Museum offers permanent exhibition galleries with more than 2,500 pieces currently on display, a calendar of temporary exhibitions that allows its visitors to be in touch with important national and international displays of history, art and archaeology, and a varied educational and cultural program that includes seminars, lectures, concerts, video, theatrical and dance performances.
 
As a contribution to academic discussions on Colombia´s cultural history, the Museum organizes the Cátedra Anual de Historia 'Ernesto Restrepo Tirado', an academic event that has been carried out annually for more than 10 years. It also offers a series of publications that compile material on the Museum's collections as well as the memoirs of academic events.
