This is an exhibition that takes the public on a journey through the development of lotteries in Costa Rica, with the help of the Junta de Caridad. The narration of the facts goes from the Cuban lottery game, through the first lottery draw and culminates with the current destiny of the money generated by this game.



The reproduction of documents abounds, including minutes of the Junta de Caridad, correspondence, photographs of the Chapuí Asylum and Puerto Limón, the bill in which José María Castro Madriz defends the lottery, and a wide variety of banknotes. The latter come from the private collection of Dr. Jorge Castro Mora, and include specimens from the 19th century, thematic collections (painters, women and Presidents of the Republic), as well as Chances, Lotería Instantánea and Tiempos.

SIZE: 6 metal structures. Each one is 1.40 m wide and 2.10 m high.
