This was once upon a time a private collection. It is a nice location and lots to see. Does make one wonder how many things are in private collections that maybe should be available to the public to see.

Far away, dingy, run down, no attention has been paid to the exhibits in decades. At least 3/4 of the museum is comprised of military artifacts and has nothing to do with the "museo de oro" The gold exhibit is not of very good quality...More

This out of the way, private museum is daunting at first when you enter the main collection building because of the arms collection which is huge and sadly presented more like a garage sale than a museum. I suggest bypassing the guns, swords, and regalia...More

Spent a long morning at this museum and probably only was able to take in about half of the attraction. There are thousands of gold and military artifacts in this museum. All are well preserved. Some of the displays are a bit overwhelming because of...More

Really quite interesting--actually it's the "Museo de Oro y Armas" (gold and weapons)-and there are more weapons than gold. The gold (pre-Colombian origin) is fairly well categorized, but the weapons (lots and lots of weapons!) are not. If you are into weapons, this is the...More

No photographs allowed, and they are quite strict about this, there is a gift shop inside the museum and they have books and cards about the various artefact, so might get a few cards you coul copy for the slideshow.
