An interesting museum devoted to aspects of the life of Simon Bolivar. I found the exhibit on the exhumation of his remains to be quite disturbing.

First of all, the Museo is NOT the Casa Natal. And the Museo is a mishmash, only mildly interesting, and, well, that's about all there is to say. It is certainly worth a visit because it is free, but even more importantly because it's fascinating...More

well worth a visit. a large collection of important artifacts and paintings dating back to 18th century. Very interesting and a must on any guided tour in Caracas.

If you are in town, you could visit this small house of Bolivar at el centro and learn the history. It doesn't take long to finish the tour and listen to the tour guide to tell you the history. However, be careful and be safe...More

Guided tour provided by college students. Captivating and interactive story telling by getting visitors to participate by asking questions. I learned quite a bit about Simon Bolivar's last days. Small museum. Can get quite hot since there is no A.C.

In downtown Caracas almost everything is ugly except for this place. The set up is good, the art is good and the building is in great conditions.

Lots of history in this place. Luckily my friend was a local and was showing me around as the exhibits where in Spanish. I still found the museum very interesting and with Bolivar's house next door you can visit both quite easily. As with most...More

To those history lovers, this is a place to see. Many of the artifacts used by Simon Bolivar are at this museum. Not only it is a great place to see for the items inside of it, but it is next to his house which...More

nice to see a part of the culture all in one place. I like when museums help you to save your time and at the same time get you familiar with local culture and local heros like Simon Bolivar.

A few interesting exhibits in here. No English translations which didn't really bother me but which would put off some tourists to whom this place aimed.

I visited the house back in 2011, and there is some great pieces of history here, the house isn't too big, or commercial. The only down side is due to lack of Tourism in Caracas, there isn't a single word written in English here. Either...More
