Museo del Oro Zenú is part of the regional network of Museo del Oro, Bogota. It hosts the golden adornments of the Zenú people that lived in the Caribean plains two thousand years ago, and their ceramics, and it states that Zenues still live and...more
Good, but small exhibit. Has air con so worth a step in to escape the heat and set the scene for its bigger brother in Bogata.
I prefer the ones in Santa Marta and bogata but still some good exhibits here and English translations.

It gives such valuable insites...More

A two floors layout makes a perfect tour around gold culture among indigenous people before Spanish genocide and its legacy. Air conditioned rooms, descriptions both in Spanish and English.
Definetly it over performs the comparison with the one at the opposite side of the square...

Museo del Oro Zenú belongs to Banco de la República, the central bank of Colombia. There is a gold museum in Bogota, and six regional museums focusing on the regional archaeology. They are all different, and their golden pieces and ceramics tell tales about ancient pre-Hispanic times in this country.
