this was ok and it was fun to see the old coins and read a little about the history. you can also see the massive machines they used to mint these little coins-we've come a long way. i was happy to meander through the exhibits after leaving the botero museum but i wouldn't consider it a destination in and of... 更多
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.
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.
In the same site of Botero museum, we found Casa de La Moneda. More than just a museum about Colombian currency, it´s about politician history and more. The staff are amazing, just ask for help you will be surprised and amazed about what they have to share. Together with Botero Museum, maybe half day for each, talking for those really... 更多
Well, a great way to learn to read Spanish adds to a wonderful political history of Colombia and in part, its neighbours. Another one to come back to. And all this is FREE entry!
I would not have thought of a coin museum in a city with a gold museum and a national museum, but it was interesting. history of money minting, and therefore also colombian history. It is joined to the Botero Museum and Art Museum, so definitely worth a pass-through. The whole building (Banco de Republica) is lovely.
I truly hate museums, but I liked this one, they have all the history of the colombian money, it's very interesting. They have lots of coins and bills from ages ago! and very well preserved. They have something called Balin, which is a huge piece of gold very beautiful. Worth seeing. The architecture of the place is truly nice. And... 更多
This is a well done museum on the history of coins in Colombia where the mint used to be (I think) I thought the quality of the information was very good and most of it is translated to english with high quality. The price is right (no coins) and there's a cool collection of old coin press equipment.
Free entrance for this historic museum which explains how coins were made in early years, great extensive collections of art and history, well worth visit!
