Hey Everyone, okay, really it's the Museos del Banco Central de Costa Rica, but in Travel Books and out on the streets, it's known as the Gold Museum. It's actually a couple different places all wrapped up in one building. There's an art gallery for temporary art exhibits, another exhibit about the history of the monetary system in Costa Rica and on the bottom floor, gold, gold and more GOLD- over 20,000 troy ounces of GOLD in more than 2,000 objects. There's also a gift shop and a branch of the Costa Rican Tourist Institute's info center... but the point is.... is it ALL worth the $9.00 entrance fee?
