Julio César Cubillos Archeological Museum



The Julio César Cubillos Archaeological Museum (AMJCC) began its work on March 22, 1967 by an agreement signed between the Municipal Companies of Cali and the Universidad del Valle, with the former name of Regional Center for Archaeological Research. In its beginnings, until the year of 1982, when its archaeological collections were transferred to the Meléndez Campus of the Universidad del Valle, it worked in one of the rooms of the Public Improvements Society of Cali. On December 1, 1986, the Archaeological Museum of the Universidad del Valle was inaugurated on the site where it stands today, in the Plazoleta de Las Palmas, below the Mario Carvajal Library. The JCCAM is named after the archaeologist Julio César Cubillos, who dedicated a large part of his life to the study of pre-Hispanic societies in southwestern Colombia, especially in Valle del Cauca.
