A good sized collection of the history of columbian money and some of the interesting presses used to make the money. I found it fascinating to learn that for a time all of the money for the country was outsourced to New York City.

This is a great art collection of colombian painters, and the center piece, the religious custody with 1475 emeralds and other precious stones. From there you can cross to the Museo Botero, another incredible place !

As someone who enjoys coins and bills and the history they tell, I found this museum disappointing. The lighting is poor so for the most part, the coins on display appear as dark circles with the details difficult to make out.

This and the Gold Museum are the best concerning the importance of gold and silver in the Spanish Colonia period and it is rare to find a museum dedicated to coins anywhere in the world.
