"A magical dive into the subtle art of pre-colombians"
0

The Gold museum of Bogota is by far the most interesting thing to see in Bogota ! And clearly a must-see museum in South America. Even if you are not at all into gold, you will be fascinated by the subtelty, delicacy and expressivity of all the collection (jewells, artifacts, small metallurgy objects, etc.). You can around in 1.5 hours. It is also a great way of getting introduced to the pre-colombian civilizations before a trip around the country.

Gold Museum, Bogotá

The Museum of Gold is a museum located in Bogotá, Colombia. It is one of the most visited touristic highlights in the country. The museum receives around 500,000 tourists per year.

The museum displays a selection of pre-Columbian gold and other metal alloys, such as Tumbaga, and contains the largest collection of gold artifacts in the world in its exhibition rooms on the second and third floors. Together with pottery, stone, shell, wood and textile objects, these items, made of – to indigenous cultures – a sacred metal, testify to the life and thought of the different societies which lived in present-day Colombia before the Spanish conquest of the Americas.
