Face down. Check page 2 of the instruction manual.

Although they are face up if you play on Yucata, which I prefer.

The rule book seems to say they are hidden behind the screen. But that's not right is it?

Yes, but after a time they won't fit so keep them face down

Ah, my rule book is different to the one in the file section on BGG.

On page 1 it says "You attain victory points in the form of victory point markers, which you collect face down in front of you."

And on page 2 it says "Put your goods and money behind your screen."

So to me, that is the definitive answer.

The screen is just for goods and money, face down VP can be put anywhere.
