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 is a free museum. It has lots of information regarding the history of currency in Colombia. The way the museum presents the information can be a bit tiresome (the museum has a old style way of displaying and telling the story).

Sounds boring, but it was actually very interesting because so well presented. Part of a complex that also includes the Botera museum and a museum of Colombian art. The latter was fascinating and, again, amazingly well curated.
