Lonely Planet review

The Cartagena Gold Museum is like a miniature version of Bogotá's world-class gold museum. Though small, it offers a fascinating collection of gold and pottery of the Sinú (also known as Zenú) people, who inhabited the region of the present-day departments of Bolívar, Córdoba, Sucre and northern Antioquia before the Spanish Conquest. Some pieces are exquisitely detailed. Should you be heading to Bogotá, this gold museum offers just a taste of the bigger and grander one there. It's also a superb spot to cool right down as the air-con is set to arctic levels.
