Small yet packed place on everything about the paper bills and coins of the Philippines. It houses the biggest sheet of paper bill ever printed in terms of the size of paper and many other notes although the quality of the collection and the method of storage still has a lot to improve. There are some international currencies in display... 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.

The nice thing about this museum is that you see how the currency evolved from the colonial times up to modern times. It's also nice to see how the money is manufactured. I would recommend this stop over should you be staying at a hotel nearby, because if you are staying at a hotel in Makati or Bonifacio Global City,... More

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.

Entrance to the museum is free but getting in required a lot of bureaucracy, which is typical in the Philippines. The museum is compact and easy to navigate. It only took us 1.5 hours to finish seeing all the exhibits. Taking pictures is allowed. It was interesting to see the artifacts on display, especially the currency used during the colonial... More

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.
