Gold Museum (Museo del Oro) Reviews
Of course, this is a one-of-a-kind experience and you cannot afford to miss it. The Banco de Republica exhibits tens of thousands of pre-columbian gold works in a beautifully designed building... more »
The Museum has a nice display of gold and how it was used across centuries. This is a main attraction in Bogota and was pretty crowded when we were there. more »
A must go Museum if your visiting Bogota! Great museum full of gold pieces made by the Natives a long time ago. You learn History of Latin America and you see their broad richness in gold and they’re expertise working with it! Bring 1-2 Hours Time to enjoy the Museum at least and learn this Latin-treasure.
Great experience. The museum makes an effort to emphasize how important these sculptures and creations are for Colombian and Pre-Hispanic history. The museum is laid out in a way that let you start with the simplest content, getting more complex as you advance. It is a very nice place and the staff is really polite and helpful. My visit took about 2hm hours and there are descriptions in English and Spanish. Tickets for adults are 4.000 pesos on any regular day, with free admission on Sundays. People over 60 and children under 12 also have free admission.
