This is the report of the internship at the National Museum of Colombia that I did in the summer of 2001 as part of the Master in Administration of Arts. The initial part of the report deals with a description of the National Museum of Colombia including its history, goals, organizational structure, and the projects and programs conducted there. This is followed by a description of the funding of the organization and the problems identified therein.
