The Gold Museum in Bogotá, Colombia, displays an extraordinary selection of its pre-Hispanic gold work collection – the biggest in the world. Together with other pottery, stone, shell, wood and textile archaeological objects, these items testify to the life and thought of different societies which inhabited what is now known as Colombia before contact was made with Europe.
On Sundays the Museum is crowded due to free entrance. Did you know that the Museum Restaurant is the best place to have lunch during your visit to downtown Bogotá? Did you know that the most enjoyable way to tour the Gold Museum exhibitions is with the pre-recorded Audioguides?
