This was a interesting less crowded side trip in the town. The history of the money was different from most of the other things to see and very informative. It also didn’t take long and as I was on a tour that was a good...More

As I come from one of the offshore international financial centres, the components of the audio tour and the exhibits that covered the history of the emergence and progressive development of money was particularly interesting. My wife and I were visiting Segovia on a day...More

This museum is the result of a full renovation of the old mint. Lots of information with some original and some recreated artefacts. Admission is free on Wednesday. There is a audio visual information area on site about the Aqueduct which was quite interesting.

Good displays and exhibits tracing the making of coins in the recently refurbished mint. Plenty of information in English so the audio guide isn't essential. I particularly liked the working replicas and outside water wheels. There is also a secluded garden and an exhibition about...More

This is the mint, powered by water flow . And the restoration has been done very nice. We stayed till closing. Really could have been an Other hour. If you like original mechanical functionality of devices Then this is for you.
