It is right there so walk through it

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.

This is a money museum based in a historical mint building. It contains a wide collection of old Colombian coinage, notes and related artefacts. There is also a number of vintage coin-pressing machines. At the back is a gallery of modern art, containing some very weird pieces. The museum is completely free and contains some information in English.

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.

Located aside from the Botero Museum. Colonial two story building with a square form, at the center a nice garden with fountains, surrounded by corridors. Inside there is machinery that was used to manufacture coins. You can enjoy an extensive collection of ancient coins from several periods of time. No fee for entrance.

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... More

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.

Interesting exhibitions, not much of the explanations are in English. Interesting to walk around quickly and it is free. You might as well visit on the way to the Botero museum. But not a must see for Bogota.
