Barranquilla’s Romantic Museum brings together all aspects concerning the traditions and history of the city. Founded in 1983, it is located in an old Republican style mansion, where over 3,000 photos and objects may be admired, all culturally valuable to the city.

The following are among the most representative objects: costumes of Barranquilla Carnival queens; Alfonso Fuenmayor’s typewriter, on which Gabriel García Márquez wrote his novel, “Leaf Storm”; several letters from Liberator Simón Bolívar, a photo archive, and a collection of vinyl records.

The Romantic Museum also pays homage to Barranquilla’s hymn and to its carnival. Other elements are a journalism hall, a radio hall, and replicas of the Church of San Nicolás, the Emiliano Theater, and the Abello Promenade.
