Museo Numismatico de Guatemala

Monday, May 26th, 2014

Today I went to run some errands and on my way back, staring through the metro’s window at one of the stations I see this big sign saying “Free Entrance”, and of course I had to quickly get out of the metro and check out this numismatic museum.

The museum is a bit small, you can walk the entire expo in less than 15 minutes, perfect for a quick stop. You’ll love that the expositions has the information in Spanish and English as well.

Too bad there were no photographs allowed inside. And no free samples: Damn Bastards! Oh, one of the displays is missing a 50 Quetzals bill, you know you are in Guatemala!

To get to the museum is very easy; its in front of the Banco de Guatemala stop of the metro system.

Oh, something I learnt at the museum; when the country became independent from the Spaniard Crown, we kept the existing governing structure, in fact the same personnel was running the institution. So much about independence….
