There is a little collection of precolumbian pottery. The entrance is 4000cop...the building is old and nice. There is also known as casa del Marques de San Jorge.

Great museum. All sorts of interesting artifacts and some nice, compact and thoughtful exhibits. I think this is a nice complementary experience with the Gold Museum. Recommended!

Original furniture from the home and a large display of pottery from several areas of the country. It cost 4,000 admission or 3,500 for seniors. The second floor housed the pottery and on the ground floor there was a special exhibit of masks.

The museum is quite simple and limited, the building on the other site is quite interesting, you can think being in a colonial house with old floors and quite patio.

I enjoyed walking around this beautiful building. Well worth a visit. The collection is interesting and we enjoyed the cool ambience of the cafeteria after the heat of the city.

It's not an outstanding museum, it's small, but they have a great collection. It's fee and only takes about 30 minute to walk through. It's all in Spanish unfortunately, but really worth looking at some of the relics they have.

A little bit disappointing by this museum. It's displaying hundred of pieces of pottery, some very interesting. But it's difficult to have further explanations. It really needs more organisation and development to value the artifacts on display. Entrance fee very reasonable, I was almost the...More

This is a little visited gem in Bogota. It houses the art collection of the Banco Popular. The museum really needs to rename and rebrand itself since the collection is both pre-Columbian pottery and Spanish colonial art housed in a historically significant 17th century home....More
