If you find yourself staring at Downtown Kingston’s tallest building, you’ve found the Central Bank, home to the National Coin and Currency Museum. Inside are exhibits of Jamaican tokens, coins and paper money spanning centuries. Standout items on display are 700-year-old paper notes from China and a gold artifact belonging to the Taino Indians, Jamaica’s first inhabitants. This being the Land of Reggae, you’ll also find a handful of Bob Marley commemorative coins. Admission is free; the museum is closed weekends and open weekdays during banker’s hours. Keep in mind you’ll go through a metal detector to enter the bank.
- Open Hours: Monday to Friday from 10:00 AM to 04:00 PM
