"If in San Jose, See the Museo do Oro Precolumbino" San Jose Tip by Paul2001

San Jose, Costa Rica: 35 reviews and 68 photos

  Artifact from the Gold Museum, San Jose
by Paul2001

The Musee de Oro Precolumbino is the one museum in all of Costa Rica that should be visited, especially if you are in the San Jose area. This museum features gold artifacts from the Pre-Columbian area and they are quite simply stunning. Most of the icons created in gold are of animials that look particular vicious. The detail in each piece is quite amazing.
