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.

The Moneda museum contains a nice collection of historical coins and the machines used to make them, some many hundreds of years old. Be careful as photos are not allowed in the galleries. Beautiful gardens as well.

Free of charge, located in the heart of the city and worth your visit! What more could one want? The exhibition is interesting, there is plenty to see, learn and admire. It appeals to both young ones and adults. I would recommend it to anyone....More

This is where Botero is located. The building is actually a complex and worth visiting for its preservation and history and art exhibits.

This is an interesting free museum recalling the history of gold melting and coin making. It can be combined with visit to Museo Botero. Beautiful building creates a nice setting for this collection.

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.

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.
