The Banco de la República Gold Museum houses one of the most important collections of pre-Hispanic metallurgy in the world. As its history, which dates back to 1939, has unfolded, so this institution has become a symbol of Colombia's cultural memory. Its golden exhibition, fully renewed in November, 2008, is a place you cannot miss in your next trip to Bogota.

This was my favourite museum in Bogota. The extensive collection is very beautifully displayed over 4 rooms. The free guided tour was really worth doing as it helped highlight and explain the artefacts a lot more than exhibition writing - and the guides were very...More

This is one of the best museums i've been to. You walk through floors of gold. All of the little golden amuletts etc. are handcrafted and this is really awesome. There are lot of small things you can't believe them crafted these hundred years ago....More

The museum is organized in such a way that it not only offers the visitor a beautiful exhibit of the greatly varied gold pieces from pre Columbian times, but also a very good perspective of the societies that inhabited these territories. Loved it!
