Absa Money Museum

Next time you find yourself in downtown Jo'burg waiting for that money transfer from Mom, why not treat yourself to a visit to the one and only Absa Money Museum. Another first from ABSA.

Do you like money? Well then, the ABSA Money Museum is the place to be. The Absa Group Museum was awarded the coveted Bob Morris Trophy for the best numismatic exhibition in South Africa. Well, actually, it's also the only numismatic exhibition in South Africa.
