At Casa de Moneda - Coleccion Numismatica del Banco de la Republica, follow the history of local currency chronologically, from pre-Columbia days through the 20th century. Housed in a historical mint, the museum includes collections of machinery, banknotes, coins, and more. As you progress through time, you'll note a transition from the goods-exchange system of the tribes before European contact to the coin-based economy under Spanish colonial rule. Along the way, you'll also learn a lot about the nation's social, economic, and political development, both before and after its independence from Spain. Although many displays feature only Spanish text, you can enjoy much of the museum visually.

Where to stay in Bogota

Many visitors to Bogota stay in La Candelaria, a colonial-era neighborhood in the city center where you can find plenty of decent hostels and mingle with tourists from around the globe. Staying in this area also puts you within walking distance of the city's major museums and best nightlife options. If you prefer to sleep in a quieter area and visit this busy district during the day, consider accommodations in the northern section of the city, which includes the upscale neighborhood Zona T.
