Museo del Oro–The Gold Museum Bogota, Colombia

The gold Museum of Bogota houses the world’s largest collection of Pre-Hispanic gold in the world. 

They also had a couple really unique archeological pieces.

And a real mummy (this is SOOOO cool)



The gold museum is a pretty cool place. Especially if you like shiny objects or museums. I don’t want people to think it is pointless, I am just not a fan of museums. But I was a fan of the locks on this door, and almost got kicked out for photographing it

But they let me keep the photos as I scowled, and loudly pretended that the photo wouldn’t come out. I was, however, watched VERY closely after that.
