Not all of the gold the Spanish plundered from South America was lost. Some of it, precious remnants of the pre-columbian civilizations of the Zenu people, survived. These exquisitely crafted artifacts are on display at this museum on Plaza Bolivar. In addition to gold you will also find ceramics, exhibitions on the burial of the dead, and an explanation of ancient drainage systems.  There is also a small collection of shells and lithics. The Spanish plunder of the graves of these people for their gold financed to the initial years of the city. Even though this isn't as big a museum as the Museum of Gold in Bogota it's worth a quick stop.

  • Great to read about the history of Gold in Colombia. A great space to explore. Everything written in both English and Spanish.

  • Not as big as it's counterpart in Bogota but lovely little museum and it is free.

  • Small, but interesting. Worth a visit. Free entry.

  • Very interesting historical info and more pre-Columbian gold art than any other museum we've been to.

  • Great guides, but have to improve their English
