This museum is also free too. And also connected to Botero's museum. So you can enter this museum after or before going to Botero's museum. They gave me a memorial coin for free. You can earn some money!

The building is so beautiful and well restored . Here is also where the botero museum is. The building hosts Boteros private collection that he donated to the city of Bogota and its free to get in. There are also many other artists and they do a presentation on how money was made . It is well worth the walk... More

Give this museum an hour of your time and you will not be disappointed. Rather then free admission the museum should have a '"donation'' of foreign currency or coins. Within a year they will have enough material to open an entirely new wing.

On the compulsory tour of Museums the kids were already starting to get bored... but entering this site with the many possibilities for active participation... (pressing buttons, etc) this visit saved the day and their enthusiasm was back....

This is connected to the Botero museum, so one has to avoid it not to visit it. It tells the history of mint in Colombia and it is interesting.

This is a money museum based in a historical mint building. It contains a wide collection of old Colombian coinage, notes and related artefacts. There is also a number of vintage coin-pressing machines. At the back is a gallery of modern art, containing some very weird pieces. The museum is completely free and contains some information in English.

I'm truly grateful that this museum is next to the Botero Museum and Are Museum. All three FREE museums are connected to each other by hallways and fancy stairways. Another thing - all exhibits at this museum have English and Spanish explanations! I learned from these signages the history of the coins and paper currencies of Colombia.

Located aside from the Botero Museum. Colonial two story building with a square form, at the center a nice garden with fountains, surrounded by corridors. Inside there is machinery that was used to manufacture coins. You can enjoy an extensive collection of ancient coins from several periods of time. No fee for entrance.

A great small museum recounting the history of money from Spain to the Americas. It would be a little hard if you don't know Spanish because there are few descriptions in English. There are plenty of guides that work there that can help you understand. Be sure to see the equipment and huge gold ball.
