From the close relationship between the ritual commemorations and museums as two forms of configuration and transmission of social memory, this article analyzes a museum proposal developed on the occasion of the Bicentennial of the Independence in Colombia (2010): The comprehensive renovation project of the Museo de la Independencia Casa del Florero in Bogota (Spanish acronym MICF), one of the most important museums of history of the country, which experienced a remodeling of both its architecture and its historical and museological narratives. The aim of the text is to track some of the shifts of sense in the historical narrative of the museum, which goes from being considered a "temple of the homeland" to become a forum for reflection on history, Independence and citizenry.
