A Visit to Macumba, Bogotá’s Most Original Museum

Macumba, which Bogotá Bike Tours visits occasionally on tours, is probably Bogotá’s most original, unique and least known museum. Jaime Barranco created it in his own home, using the innumerable objects he collected during his youthful travels.

Eclectic is an understatement for describing Barranco’s collection, which includes marble eggs from China, indigenous African and Colombian masks and random cultural icons, including Barbie dolls and a plastic Jaws shark. Go figger.
