James Turrell Museum

Top choice

Colomé Bodega boasts this stunning museum designed by artist James Turrell that features a permanent exhibition of six of his works. These are utterly memorable installations involving light and the strange frontiers of our own perception; it’s a remarkable place. Both bodega and museum visits are offered in a single 90-minute tour, and must be booked ahead by phone or email.
