Museo Magütá-Bienvenidos

The Magütá Museum is a family heritage, created in 2019 by Abel Antonio Santos, Magütá teacher and linguist, who completed his PhD at the Amazonia campus of Universidad Nacional de Colombia. For 20 years, the creation of a museographic space was devised with the elements and materials that were collected by Abel during the development of the linguistic workshops and his participation in the Magütá rituals of passage. In 2019 the idea came to fruition and the space was built. The museum has archaeological and ethnographic pieces from the Magütá people.

The Magütá recordings stored in the Archive of the Indigenous Languages of the Amazon (ARDILIA) are part of the collections of this Museum.
