Gold Museum (Museo del Oro)

Calle 16 No. 5-41, Bogotá, Cundinamarca

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.

Great tour of Bogota
Definitely worth checking out this tour. We were picked up at our hotel on time and met our guide Camila at Monserrate which was beautiful despite the cloudy day. We then walked down to La Candelaria and checked out a few local places. Camila was great and helped bring the tour to life. Would definitely recommend!

La Candelaria, Mount Monserrate and Museo del Oro in One Day in Bogota
Diego was a fantastic guide, and I really enjoyed my few hours with him. His English is fluent and he is knowledgeable about all matters Colombian: art; history; politics; architecture; wildlife etc. I cannot recommend Diego enough, and on my next trip to Bogotá will definitely look him up for another tour.

Immensely Pleasurable Expedition for my One Day in Bogota

La Candelaria, Mount Monserrate and Museo del Oro in One Day in Bogota
Tours are usually perfect because of the guide/host. Which is why this was a perfect day from the beginning to the end. Rafi is extremely knowledgeable and attentive. We learned so much about Bogota in the time we spent with him. Mount Monserrate was beautiful and the ride up and down was also a true experience. (Beware of the Sunday crowd, its insane.) The price was definitely worth the tour, you get more value than you think with this team. My husband is not a big museum fan but I am, so I loved getting to see the Museo del Oro and walk around La Candelaria and take photos of some of the street art. The best part for me was on the day we toured we were able to meet two of the other tour guides with their groups and they were all amazing! We stopped at a cafe on the Mount and had Canelazo. It was a perfect day!

Rafael was the best guide we ever had. Great day. He placed the day perfectly, stopping in typical Colomian places whenever we need to rest. Got a lot more than wah we paid for.

Inteligent, knowledgeable, dinamic, friendly... exceeded my expectations. Since there were no many people registered for the tour, I received a private one! Happy me.
