Museo Santa Clara

Bogota | Colombia

About the Museum

The Museo Santa Clara is located in the historic centre of Bogota and has as its headquarters a former Clarian church, a unique standing fragment from what was the Royal Convent of Santa Clara. This museum offers an immersion in the convent culture of the 17th and 18th centuries through its architecture and the varied collection of altarpieces, paintings, sculptures, and murals. It is accompanied by Johanna of St. Stephen, an interactive guide to the museum. With her, and thanks to various touch screens, visitors get to visit the crypt, the bell tower and the vaulted ceiling, as well as seeing the paintings that are mounted in the highest areas of the museum preserving the spatial configuration of the colonial period.

The enjoyment and knowledge of the colonial heritage enter into dialogue with the temporary exhibitions of contemporary art that the museum opens annually in order to update the perspective on the past according to artistic interpretations from the present.
