The Banco de la República Gold Museum houses one of the most important collections of pre-Hispanic metallurgy in the world. As its history, which dates back to 1939, has unfolded, so this institution has become a symbol of Colombia's cultural memory. Its golden exhibition, fully renewed in November, 2008, is a place you cannot miss in your next trip to Bogota.

Much better attraction than we expected. The items on display are magnificent and very well presented. It's unbelievable that so many ancient and priceless artifacts have survived in such amazing condition.

I'm not that big of a museum-fan, but is a really nice museum with an interesting collection. Texts are also in English. And it only costs 4.000 Pesos (about 1,30 Euros). Also the museum itself looks really good.

Very well organized with lots of information! I did not take my kid, but saw lots of families with them and there were no issues. Kids were admiring the place and staff was supportive and helpful. It has lots of history and they allow for you to take pictures (but no flash)

Definitely go to the Gold Museum. Colombia's reputation for the Dorado Legend is well deserved and this museum presents an impressive collection of gold pieces from hundreds of indigenous cultures. Absolutely worth it!

Yes, the Aztecas, the Mayas and the Incas built amazing piramids, temples and roads. The Colombian pre-hispanic cultures did not but they were incredible handcrafters and produced beatiful gold pieces, magnificently displayed in this not to miss museum.
