Gold Museum (Museo del Oro) Tours

star-4.5
114 reviews
Gold Museum (Museo del Oro)
Gold Museum (Museo del Oro) is one of the city’s most popular attractions. It sparkles with more than 55,000 priceless archaeological and artistic treasures. Only a fraction can be displayed at any one time, laid out to tell tales of pre-Colombian mining, manufacturing, and metallurgy of pre-Hispanic Colombians.
 
The Basics
The Gold Museum is Bogotá’s most famous museum, as well as one of the most fascinating in South America. The permanent collection occupies three floors, with descriptions in Spanish and English. Don’t miss the Offering Room, where a light and sound show teaches visitors how gold was used in religious rituals. For a deeper understanding, join a guided tour, which can be combined with a visit to Lake Guatavita, where many gold artifacts were recovered.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Gold Museum is a must-visit for history buffs and first-time visitors.
  • Plan to spend at least 90 minutes touring the collection.
  • Audio guides are available in several languages, including English.
  • A limited number of storage lockers are available.
  • The museum is wheelchair accessible; use the ramp at the entrance off 16th Street.
 
How to Get There
The easiest way to reach the museum via public transportation is to take the TransMilenio toward Las Aguas and get off at Museo del Oro Station. If you decide to drive, two-hour free parking is available.
 
When to Get There
The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday year-round, with shorter hours on Sunday. The museum can become crowded on Sunday when admission is free.
 
Visiting the Emerald Museum
Of course, all that glitters in Colombia is not gold. Consider crossing Santander Park to the Emerald Museum, a private collection of some 3,000 Colombian emeralds.
Address: Calle 16 No. 5-41, Bogotá, Cundinamarca, Colombia
Admission: Varies
