  • The Museum as such is very interesting but it is free makes it very insecure since locals criminals and out like Peter at home surely in complicity with the security of the place which must recognize them. My family was stolen within these facilities where we go 4 meters for 3 minutes with our Briefcase and was enough to make to open us to the Briefcase and elgieran exactly what to steal (money and a cell phone) at this point we've communicated with the mail that appears on the web site of the site requesting evidence from security cameras already that the Briefcase in theory it had a keeps safety and we have the question of whether the was to take it for the first time or was one of the suspicious characters that abound in the place. This sector is full of Venezuelan origin mostly prosttucion. In follow-up to the phone via GPS saw it was until 5 PM at all front of the guard perhaps some place? and he was then taken to several places of that area to park in a seedy area, where you will find a Hairdresser. Refrain families with young children because they are the favorite dish of the crime in this city. I think that this will improve when they put a value so is minimum and that register the entry of visitors requiring ID otherwise tourists will continue being stolen inside something that is innadmisible for a place that claims to be historical.

  • This museum is free and yet d very great interest. It evokes the different aspects of the history pre-Columbian c is to say Aboriginal inhabitants. There is actually an entire room devoted to gold with great works but also d other objects either d art or everyday life, their live art in fact. A large place is left also in the phase of colonization with its episodes little ŕeluisants and an entire room is dedicated to Simon Bolivar, whose short life has nevertheless been more hectic. Most of the news are written simultaneously in Spanish and English. We spend the time you want between one and two hours this last value allowing a detailed tour.

  • Free and interesting. Banco de la República does a very good job with the gold museums scattered in many cities of the country
  • Nice museum, not as rich as Bogota's of course, but it tells done interesting stories about the region. Admission free.
  • A wide variety of artifacts and a very cool history! It had history of the region and the house itself is the oldest in the country! Very cool!
  • Cool place to see some colombian history and hear about the early days of santa marta. And the admission is free
  • It's very informative and free of charge so if you don't get to read about everything in one visit you can always come back..pity they don't have a little cafeteria in the courtyard..:)
