A must for history and museum lovers

It is a small museum, but it really makes up for it with a rather nice collection of historical bits from the early beginnings of Colombian currency.

I really like history, so I went to this museum, and I love it. You could find from the beginning the process of making money in Colombia and the Andean region. You will see the Spanish Real (money from Spain), and the Peso from Colombia, and all money, coins, and bills from all the past to present. Also they have... More

Very good displays, much inter-active stuff for kids - especially on gold production and minting. Lots of stuff for those interested in coins, notes and the colourful monetary history of Colombia. Also, next to the Botero.

I high recommend this coin attraction for an afternoon event. Access is free and to view the history of a nation's money is very interesting as well as the history behind all the coins.

First and foremost, it's FREE. Take advantage of Colombia's fine richness by visiting the Casa Moneda and just next to it, museo de Botero and be awed by the rich history on both it's financial and art background. We love it! Highly recommended!

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.
