Museo del Oro

Laid out over three floors, this world-famous museum houses the world’s largest collection of pre-Hispanic gold.

The Gold Museum holds an unrivalled collection of stunningly beautiful gold jewellery and objects crafted by pre-Hispanic societies in Colombia. The exhibition explores the ancient techniques used to manufacture these pieces, and the way that gold was incorporated into political and religious ceremonies and shamanism. It concludes with a section on Cosmology and Symbolism which includes some of the most beautiful and rare items.

There are bilingual descriptions for almost all exhibits and guided tours which offer you the chance to scratch beneath the surface of the artefacts and gain a deeper understanding of pre-Hispanic Colombia.
