An out of the way museum of the history of currency of the Philippines. You get to see how the coins and paper bills have come along and what security measures have been implemented. Surprisingly, there is a history lesson that goes along with it...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.
