This exhibition presents a variety of unusual items never shown before, carefully selected by the Museum’s Curator to illustrate the sheer scope and diversity of the Bank’s collections, amassed during its long history and mainly acquired in the course of its business.

The Museum permanent galleries display some of the most significant items to illustrate the history of the Bank as a prominent financial institution since its foundation in 1694 to the present day.

The “curiosities” in this exhibition reveal new and fascinating stories about the lives of staff, customers and personalities connected to the Bank over more than three centuries, offering a unique opportunity for a historical look behind the scenes of Threaneedle Street.Battered leather trunk
