This museum is very interesting and the guides are very helpful and tell you a lot of the stones and the mining in Columbia and the jewelry. The museum is a bit hidden, because we didn't find any sign in or outside the building that...More

Stepping off the elevator more than 30 floors above the street is not where one expects to see a replica of an emerald mine, but there it is. The guide explains the different veins and equipment, and then you get to have your photo take...More
