Museo de Oro - Museum Pasto - Colombia

This small collection of pre-Columbian stone, textile, ceramic work, and requisite gold pieces, including some very fine, 2,500-year-old filigree pieces, provides excellent explanations about pre-Conquest, indigenous trade routes in the Americas, and the cultural beliefs and practices of the Proto-Pasto (Piartal and Capul├ş) peoples (Spanish only). At lunch hours, live classical music accompanies your explorations of these galleries on the third floor, and those of modern art located one story below. In the same building is the Banco de la Naci├│n library.
