  • The building is particularly interesting for those who are numismatists but a quick crossing will admire both Breughel and a few paintings from convents of nuns.

  • Very interesting museum because, in parallel with the coinage of different currencies in different times, both before and after the arrival of Hispanics, you learn and appreciate influences of the historical happenings, such as the desire for gold for send to Spain in time of the Catholic monarchs and subsequent rulers, the fights internal indigenous or struggles for independence in Spain with French, among other many incidences

  • The museum itself don't think is very interesting for no Colombian tourists, all forms of sample and especially the House where this museum is very beautiful. The entrance is free and communicates with the botero Museum.
