Museo del Oro Zenu, Cartagena

4.0
#1 of 17 in Museums in Cartagena
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. Put Museo del Oro Zenu into our Cartagena sightseeing planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Currently, in spare parts the main museum. The sample is super interesting, with all the ornaments used by the original population and the Spaniards died from ranting.
