Museo Arqueológico - Museum Bogotá - Colombia

The Museo Arqueológico, or MUSA, has an overwhelming permanent collection of pre-Columbian ceramics housed in a staggering 17th-century mansion. The history of the mansion itself is a story, for at one time it belonged to the Marquis de San Jorge, a viceroy only recognized for his cruelty. Opened to the public in 1973, the museum offers cultural exhibitions of ceramics, colonial art, and any number of seasonal exhibitions.
