Entrance is free but finding the entrance and getting in is a bit more difficult! Bring ID like a driver's licence or passport. The museum is in the central bank complex and can be accessed through gate 3. We spent about an hour viewing the...More

This review is quite late. The Money Museum is located within the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas grounds. It is a rich repository of Philippine currencies and coins from different periods of history.

As a coin and currency collector since 1963, I am appalled at the condition and method of storage of the items on display here. Some of the bills are fading and the coins are not of the finest grades.

Obviously, Money Museum is where you can find all types of Philippines currency. How they came out with an idea of using money in exchange to barter. It's very informative and tons of trivia regarding the exploration of currency.
