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!

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.

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.
