Nice museum with free guided tours
Oct 2020 • Couples
The museum is well curated. The free guided tours are a wonderful way of visiting it. Our guide was John Edisson and he was professional and clear.

Sadly I did not gain access
Jan 2020
I would imagine that all exhibits are kept behind glass (quite normal in museums), so why was I stopped from entering with my camera bag? They would have allowed my camera, but I would have had to leave the other lenses and my iPad at the reception. I don't trust reception desks with valuable equipment and they usually have limited insurance. So I gave it a miss.

Very educational

Very cool museum. It’s an intimate venue that contains a bunch of precolombian artifacts. It has artifacts from different tribes that founded the city of Cali. The entrance is free and is worth the visit. If you like gold, you’ll love this place!

Well worth the trip!

This is a small, well documented collection of the Calima people. Unfortunately, as history has repeated multiple times, the people were wiped out within 15 years of the arrival of the Spanish colonizers due to violence and disease.
There was also another exhibit related to plant medicine and healing at Parter communities.
A library was also on site as well as a good selection of books for sale.
Admission is free to this gem of learning.

This is not to be missed!

This museum is beautiful, well conceived and presented. The explanations are clear and the objects are the pride and joy of the Banco de la República. It has just a couple of rooms, unfortunatelly, but well worth it.

Fascinating & Free
Mar 2019 • Solo
Located in the museum district near Iglesia La Merced, it is one large room with vault doors. That means no cell signal. The displays are marked in academic Spanish. You will find yourself making trips to the door and looking up archaeological terms on Google Translate. Great displays thoughtfully laid out. I learned a lot about the successive cultures that arose in the Cauca valley and surrounds and about ancient goldsmithing.

Small but a nice collection of gold objects - worth a visit.
Jul 2017 • Friends
Not the wonderful gold museum of Bogota but worth dropping in for a look. There are often other art or craft exhibitions on in the same building.
