Gold Museum Tips (1)

Gold Museum

The admission is free into this very small gold museum. Personally l could not get excited about it as l thought it rather boring. If you want to learn the history of Emeralds they do have lots of information on that. They sell replicas of jewellery from pre colombian times but the collection is not great.
