Worth a stop when in the area. You get to see a history of the gold rush in Brazil and the coinage. Explanations are available in Portuguese.

History of Brazil coins. Great info about gold. Never seen so much gold in my life. Free, it took me about an hour and half to see and read everything. Mostly in Portuguese. Vigilant, and nice security

This Currency Museum is located in the building of the Bank of Brazil, and therefor are the security rules very strict. Apart from the history of money in Brazil, it also contains the biggest lump of gold (nugget) found in Brazil and a lot of funny items and stories about money.

The Central Bank Museum - Museu de Valores has some interesting things - currencies from all over the world, ancient coins, and many curiosities, including the biggest gold nugget ever found in Brazil. Kids usually love it.

Nice collection that tells a very interesting story of the money, especially the last 200 years of Brazilian currencies.
