Museo del Oro Zenú belongs to Banco de la República, the central bank of Colombia. There is a gold museum in Bogota, and six regional museums focusing on the regional archaeology. They are all different, and their golden pieces and ceramics tell tales about ancient pre-Hispanic times in this country.
