Overview

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.

The museum is very well curated. We had the advantage of a guided tour but the exhibits all seem to be well labelled and described.

What an extraordinary place. They do an excellent job of not only explaining the history and evolution, but where the artifacts were found and what they represent. The displays are very well done and well laid out. Truly a must for history lovers

Wonderful- best museum of indigenous gold objects in the world. Very well explained; most objects are explained in English as well as Spanish. (It's free for "senior citizens")
