Museum of Colonial Art
A peek at the Venezuelan colonial era: cane ceilings, iron windows, cobbled streets.
Travel back in time.
Set in the Quinta de Anauco, a kind of vacation home built in the eighteenth century for a wealthy Venezuelan family, this place will truly transport you to the colonial era, with its cane ceilings and iron windows so typical of the period, as well as an interesting garden with cobbled walkways. Inside you'll find all manner of valuable artistic and historic works of - both originals and reproductions - among which horse carriages and porcelain stand out. The permanent collection also includes some 100 paintings, as well as religious sculptures and more than 200 pieces of furnitures. The museum was inaugurated in 1961 and is located on Avenida Panteon in the center. It's open every day except Monday and offers guided visits.
