Museo del Oro Calima - Museum Cali - Colombia

A respectable collection of gold and ceramics is housed in the Banco de la República building. This is a fairly recent collection of Calima cultural artifacts (Calima is the name of the original indigenous group in the Valle de Cauca), which dates back nearly 9,000 years. Unlike the Quimbayá collection in Armenia, this museum does not have an English translation along each panel to guide you through. There is, however, a helpful English brochure that outlines the history of the Calima people and their customs. After you are finished browsing the Calima artifacts, head down the hall into the second exhibition room. Here there are several paintings and works of art that describe and illustrate the six stages of development of Latin American art and are well worth a look.
