Owner description: The Banco de la República Gold Museum houses one of the most important collections of pre-Hispanic metallurgy in the world. As its history, which dates back to 1939, has unfolded, so this institution has become a symbol of Colombia's cultural memory. Its golden exhibition, fully renewed in November, 2008, is a place you cannot miss in your next trip to Bogota.

This is definitely a must see in Bogota. Our teenagers were fascinated. We rented an audio guide which could easily be switched from English to Spanish which was necessary for our party. Don’t miss the gold room like we did!! Apparently there is a room that is all gold, but we didn’t know that until after our visit. It was relatively inexpensive, as well. You can easily spend 4 hours here.
