Numismatists, accountants, and others interested in the history of money and taxes will enjoy this small and unique museum, one of only three of its type in the world. Photographs, tax-record books, and other documents here tell the history of Customs and other forms of tax collection in Argentina. One room has also been set up as a re-creation of 1930s tax offices, complete with period machines. Though it has nothing to do with taxes, a highlight of the museum's collection is a desk used by Manuel Belgrano, the man who designed the Argentine flag. The museum has relocated from its former location on Avenida de Mayo into the main building of Administración Federal de Ingresos Públicos (AFIP) overlooking Plaza de Mayo.
