Short visit about the history of Columbian Gold. Took just a few minutes but it was interesting. Takes you through the different eras and what was found among fossils.

It's a must see tour!! Learn the history, culture, the people, and traditions. You won't regret the history lesson of Bogota and Cartagena Colombia.

Solid small, well-curated collection of beautiful pieces from across Colombia with English and Spanish signage. Great location, beautiful old venue with air conditioning that makes a great detour from exploring the old walled city,

Nice little Museum which is free to enter. Many hundreds of gold, silver and ceramic pre Columbian pieces. It is in Bolivar Plaza and has air conditioning to escape the heat.

Good, but small exhibit. Has air con so worth a step in to escape the heat and set the scene for its bigger brother in Bogata. I prefer the ones in Santa Marta and bogata but still some good exhibits here and English translations.

The museum is free and this is very nice... They should provide more information. Everything is mostly written in Spanish.. they didn't put any captions next to each item... It could help a lot to better understand evolution through the centuries and geolocalization..

It's a quick, free museum that will only take you about an hour. I was continually amazed at how detailed the pieces of art were even though they were created 1000-2000 years ago!! It might have been helpful to have a personal guide on this...More

I am not clear what the question is. You will have time to visit both the museo and the bank easily in one morning or one afternoon.
