This museum is like a miniature version of Bogotá's world-class gold museum, Museum del Oro. Though small, it offers a fascinating collection of the gold and pottery of the Zenú (also known as Sinú) 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.
