Gold Museum Or Museo Del Oro - Review

How much gold do you think you can see before your eyes start to hurt? Can’t put a number on it? Head down to the Museo del Oro and see for yourself. Bogota’s most prized possession, the Museo del Oro literally translates to the ‘museum of gold’. Displaying over 34,000 pieces of gold and some 20,000 of other Columbian relics, the museum is spread over 3 floors. The second and third floors is where it gets exciting; the former segregates the exhibits into regions from where they were procured and how they were used with an interesting fact on women figurines and their role in worship. The third floor is where they tell you how gold was used in rituals including the oldest warrior figurine that was found in an unnamed  gold belt. There’s a lot more to this museum than just gold- it’s a great way to understand what South America was before the Spanish inquisition.

  • This museum is truly an amazing place. It is full of original gold pieces that were created centuries ago by native indigenous people. It is very nice to see how this people used and manipulated gold, platinum, silver and copper. There are also lots of interesting clay pieces complementing a unique set. I do not know for sure whether it happens every day or it was a special occasion, but an indigenous father and son on were giving talks on gold preservation and restoration, and indigenous culture and communication tools. Truly amazing.

  • Very interesting exhibition. Had a tour in English. Lasted 1.5 hours and we saw 2 rooms. It's really big so go early. My son had a good time as well. I would recommend as a must visit.

  • Super well-organized and modern museum with the largest collection of gold in the world. Through this, Colombia shows a respect for their history and cultures especially the shamanism in their indigenous. Very reasonable price for entrance ticket - 4,000 peso/person. Professional staff, beautiful set up with a audio room, video rooms/section and light effect in the whole area. They even have a restaurant, an info counter and a souvernir shop inside. Highly recommended.

  • The gold museum is definitely a most in your next Colombian vacation! You will be able to know first hand the greatest treasures in the country, some of which are representative of the country and its history, the information and guidance are available in English and Spanish. A trip to Colombia won't be complete without a tour around this wonderful place full of history and entertaining education!

  • A quick little museum that would cost you about 2USD. Signage is in Spanish and in English and the fine pieces that are made out of gold are very fun to look at. It would take maybe only an hour or two if you were walking quickly through the museum. The top floor has a small interactive area for kids but it isn't that spectacular. After the walk through there's a small coffee shop on the bottom floor that has pretty good coffees and a small seating area to take a short break before taking on the city again.
