  • Stepping off the elevator more than 30 floors above the street is not where one expects to see a replica of an emerald mine, but there it is. The guide explains the different veins and equipment, and ...  more »
  • The Museum is small and pretty. This in the floor 23 of the Tower avianca. Lack of signage to get a little more. To be private Museum photographs, you can take the space was well spent to give you a good of as they are obtained and work the emeralds. Personally I liked the place, but the attitude of the Guide I seemed far from friendly, arrogant. "Do you here, understand?" ... a bit of education for care not fall customer wrong.

  • It is an atypical Museum, at least I've not visited museums on a 23rd floor. They have a very complete explanation of how removed and reaching the consumer emblematic Colombia, Emerald stone. The cost of entry is accessible $5,000. Not to miss.

  • Spectacular journey through the world of mining of emeralds, primarily recommended if you go with foreign friends that like jewelry, also exhibit and sell jewelry. It opens from 10 am, and is worth $5000 (1.45 US).
