It's a nice little modern art museum that has interesting exhibits, classes and expositions from time to time. If you're walking around the Parque de los Gatos, you should swing by and see what's going on at La Tertulla.

This is a small and beautiful museum adjacent to the Rio Cali. The modern architecture and setting in this nice area of Cali is worth a visit.

Dominantly visited by school classes and tourists. 3 halls: general art, modern art, educational section. Not of interest to international turists.

La Tertulia is a great space to get a touch of the magical culture and art that Cali have to offer. It has one of the most important contemporary art collections in the region.
