Geldmuseum Utrecht Reviews
It's all about the money Sep 27, 2010
Dutch prices are allways low, accept in Amsterdam.
This museum is all about money, how people spend it and what it does to people. It shows money from the past and the present. And not just money, but fakes too!
You can even see how it's made! From scratch up to the minting proces! You'll see that this minting factory is still being used and not just only for Dutch coins.
Children can play severall video games (most of them are very interesting for adults too) and watch some video's about the minting proces. These interactive games and videos are more important for the museum then the coins, bank notes, cheques and other pieces of money. So the phisicall museum is losing its importance here. This means the signs are in Dutch, as well as the games. But most of the guids do speak English (some beter then others). They can tell you very interesting details about the building itself. There is some very interesting history to be told here.
Because of the minting proces you are NOT allowed to make photographs in the museum!
I recieved special permission for my training period/internship like period to make photos.
Part of the list Things you should visit in case you're an architecture lover
