Casa Natal & Museo Bolívar

It is a matter of great national pride that Venezuela was the birthplace of Simón Bolívar, the man who helped several South American countries to break free from the control of Spain. This museum and reconstruction of the house in which he was born salute Bolívar’s unparalleled contributions to the history of Venezuela and all of South America. The museum contains memorabilia from throughout the life of El Libertador, while the reconstruction gives visitors a sense of his humble beginnings and also features paintings that chronicle his many accomplishments. Bolívar’s funeral took place just two blocks from the house where, on July 24, 1783, he was born. The interior of Bolívar’s birthplace has been enthusiastically reconstructed. The walls are splashed with a score of huge paintings by Tito Salas depicting Bolívar’s heroic battles and scenes from his life. All caraqueños take cheesy photos – notebooks in hand – under the backyard tree under which Simon Rodriguez was said to have taught Bolívar to read and write. Price: Admission Free Hours: 9am-4:30pm Tue-Fri, 10am-4:30pm Sat & Sun
