Fodor's Review

A former Augustinian cloister dating from 1583, this is one of Bogotá's oldest surviving buildings. This stunning building, previously known as the Museo de Artes y Tradiciones Populares, is most notable for its courtyard surrounded by arched terraces and has been run by the National University's excellent museum program. There are six galleries with constantly changing exhibits and events that include Saturday-morning yoga classes.
