“Great museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 December 2013

The museum is very informative. There is a big collection of money from all over the world. Good explanation for every item and even some nice games and lectures that help to understand different economic terms. Free entry. Very recommended!

“Loved it, but am a finance geek...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 December 2012

Loved every minute in this place. So interesting, although I am a geek for finance and money. Gift shop wasn't much good, except for chocolate coins just for the novelty.

“Cashing In”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2012

Although a bit off the beaten track it is nevertheless easy to reach.The museum is in the basement.The most interesting parts deal with the use and creation of money.Also there are some interactive screens.there is a lot that deals with bank policy and the exchange rate mechanism.I found that all rather dull but the rest of the museum kept me interested for an hour.Not a must see but still worthwhile if you have the time.

“Finest Gold Coins on Show, and a free shopping bag with my purchase”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2009

The museum is situated in a multi-story building in a pleasant district. Two floors are dedicated to the history of money in Germany. Admission is free. I must have spent two hours doing the rounds, all sorts of money that once was in use is on view. Of course also the current euro banknotes. There are many easy to follow exhibits, but the one interested me most was the wealth of German and other countries' coins in a circular viewing room that is well lit. There are magnifying glasses to slide up and down to enlarge your view of the georgeous gold coins, all well described, German, French, English, many dating back to the Hundred Years War in France, a visiual delight hard to forget!
There is also a gift shop where you can buy mounds of shredded euro notes, but for me
I simply had to get a book on Medieval Coins that I saw earlier in the book section of the museum. Pity, the two pleasant ladies said, we are out of this one. But then one of them said, wait 5 minutes, I will see if there is another copy in the store room upstairs.
Promptly, she appeared with this fantastic bargain for 20 euros, showing hundreds of coins, including 67 colour tables of the finest gold coins in the possession of the Museum. They have been enlarged so that you have 3 inch (7.5 cm) full colour pix.
Ask for MITTELALTERLICHE GOLDMUENZEN. The lady said, that's like a gift, as she handed me my purchase. And got a free GELDMUSEUM cotton shopping bag. WOW!
