Museo Casa Isleña/Island House Museum - Museum San Andres - Colombia

Casa Museo Isleña (Island House Museum) is a restored home, an example of traditional functional island architecture. It is decorated as it would have been decades ago, with family portraits on the walls, etc. There is a separate kitchen and bathroom, just like the islanders used to have long ago. The museum is popular with tours, and the place is either deserted or packed with tourists. Occasionally, young girls will start off the tour with a traditional dance set to music. The museum boasts an ocean view, and makes for a pleasant, informative visit.
