The Bank of England Museum tells the story of the Bank of England, from its foundation in 1694 to its role today as the United Kingdom's central bank.
The museum displays a wealth of historical material drawn from the Bank's own collections of books, documents, silver, prints, paintings, banknotes, coins and photographs, complemented by modern computer technology and audio visual displays. There is a display of gold, including Roman and modern gold bars, alongside pikes and muskets once used to defend the Bank.
The museum is great for everyone - children will enjoy the events taking place in the Museum during school holidays, from treasure hunts to storytelling, whilst adults and children alike will enjoy the special exhibitions on the Bank’s history and work, featuring fascinating objects from their collections that are not usually on display.
