“a beautiful spot in bogota”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2013

The Museo del Chico is a wonderful old residence donated to the city on wonderful grounds.The setting is fantastic and Chico is a particularly beautiful part of this bustling traffic clogged city -- and so a great respite. It is a charming colonial home and has a beautiful courtyard garden where weddings are held to raise money for the upkeep of the institution.
The museum itself does not compare to places like the Cooper Hewitt, but it does allow a glimpse into the life of a patrician Bogota family. There are some beautiful textiles and great dutch and japanese pottery. It is a brand new museum and it felt like the tours need to be developed. But i would say worth a visit if you have time and have already gone to the Museum of Gold and the Banco de la Republica Museo.
