Not the wonderful gold museum of Bogota but worth dropping in for a look. There are often other art or craft exhibitions on in the same building.

If you enjoy history, this small museum will be the place to visit. There are fine pieces of arts and crafts from various tribes that settled in the Valle del Cauca region. You will learn a bit about how these tribes lived.

Small musseum dedicated to the pre colombian Gold, with interesting pieces. Worth a visit if you are in Cali, and it is free.

You may as well pop if you are in the city center. It's small but nice, and free. But compared to the pre-Columbian gold museums in Bogota or San Jose, CR, this one is not worth going out of your way for.

The museum is located in what seems to be an office building, in the second floor. The museum consists of a big room filled with archeological objects: gold, ceramics, etc... I liked the logical layout and the different modes of representing the art and history...More

For it to be called a museum is just not that attractive given that they only have one room, they should consolidate it with another museum instead or have more showrooms something more attractive for tourists.
