Saturday Members Tour “Golden Worlds”
Saturday Members Tour | Golden Worlds: The Portable Universe of Indigenous Colombia
MFAH members are invited to explore the Museum’s art collections and exhibitions on special Saturday tours. Topics change monthly.
In January, join a docent on a tour of Golden Worlds: The Portable Universe of Indigenous Colombia. This extraordinary exhibition reframes the approach to ancient Colombian art, inviting visitors into a cultural dialogue that spans both space and time. Some 400 works span all the major ancient cultures of Colombia.

From intricately cast gold pendants and hammered gold masks to ceramic effigies of fantastical creatures and rare ancient textiles, the installation showcases the diversity and brilliance of ancient Colombian art. By drawing heavily on the involvement of contemporary Indigenous collaborators, Golden Worlds infuses these stunning works with life, meaning, and relevance for today and the future.
