“worth a visit - nice setting and refreshing air conditioning”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

The museum is closed on Mondays and entry is free. It is o Plaza Bolivar, just across the Museo de la inqusición.
Well organized and good explanations. It is a short visit but worth it to get to know a bit more about the history related to the gold. The door to the vault is impressive and it is quite refreshing to get out of the heat and into some air conditioning.

“Small interesting museum”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

This museum housed in an old attractive home was pleasant to visit. Some of the information was in well translated English and the displays were put together well . The entrance is free and rooms are air conditioned another. One of the security guards initiated a conversation with us and offered some touring recommendations which was very thoughtful, always a bonus to get tips from the locals

“Interesting Collection Of Gold And Artifacts”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Went to both this museum and the Museo del Oro in Bogota. They were not redundant. The museum is a great hour break from roaming Cartagena's squares and plazas. The artifacts are beautiful and the history of the indigenous people is interesting. The Air Conditioning and clean bathrooms are a big plus.
