Nearby the observatory, the fun Museo del Siglo XIX offers a look inside something other than Spanish colonial Bogotá. The museum fills a former Repúblicano-style home built intentionally in English and French styles in two swoops (in 1850 and 1880). A visit takes in a sample of 19th-century capital life, with a refashioned pharmacy, corsets galore, and an alldecked-out parlor with a secret chamber and porcelain spit jars. Don’t miss the 3000-piece toy doll collection, the culmination of six decades of collection by a couple of local señoras .
