This museum must be a must stop on your trip to Bogota, it has a large collection of pre-Columbian and colonial pieces. It is very well designed to dazzle the visitor and make the tour entertaining.

The Museum was fantastic, filled with indigenous artifacts. They had pure gold trinkets to full body covers made of the yellow metal. I think it was impossible to put price on the articles. I would recommend this visit to everybody.

Amazing artifacts, great exhibition for a really unexpensive cost! Activities for children and funny-expert guides. It's not big, you can see it all in one day, but it's so fun you should go many to see the itinerary exhibitions as well!
