Set inside Las Aulas Cloister, an ex-Jesuit university that’s one of the oldest buildings in Bogotá and a national monument, the Museo de Arte Colonial has an extensive collection of 17th- and 18th-century art, including paintings, sculptures, silver, furniture, and coins. The highlight is the largest existing collection of works by the New Granadan painter Gregorio Vasquez de Arce y Ceballos, including paintings and a complete set of drawings. After being closed for several years for an extensive renovation, the museum re-opened in 2016.
