Create an itinerary including Museo del Oro Zenu
As far as gold museums in Colombia go, Museo del Oro Zenu would probably get the silver medal, but it still makes for an extremely worthwhile visit. Often labeled as a smaller version of Bogota's Museo del Oro, the museum places a strong emphasis on Colombia's indigenous Zenu culture and their use of gold in decorations and religious artifacts. The free museum also displays household items used by the Zenu people and explains how they utilized irrigation and flood-management systems to their advantage. Spend an hour wandering through the museum in air-conditioned bliss. PutMuseo del Oro Zenu into our Cartagena sightseeing planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Entry is free. A rather scaled down example of the Gold Museum in Bogota. It can be seen in a very short time.
  • Currently a very small informative exhibition. Worth seeing.
