An exhibition telling the story of the Old Lady through items selected from the vast collections amassed since the Bank was
founded in 1694.

Spanning art, design, archaeology, architecture, ceremony, politics, wartime, the monarchy, security, fraud and forgery, crises, riots and technology, the exhibition is an absorbing presentation of world and social history from a genuinely unique perspective. Far from a predictable chronological trawl through history, it is a lively display of significant, surprising, beautiful and unusual items that have tales to tell.

Full of stories, characters and moments in history, 325 years, 325 objects is drawn from the Museum’s own collections stored deep beneath Threadneedle Street.

The Bank of England Museum tells the story of the Bank, from its foundation in 1694 to its role today as the United Kingdom's central bank. Within a full-size reconstruction of Sir John Soane’s 18th-century Stock Office, a large boat construction is full of interactive displays explaining how the Bank works, banknote design and security and how the Bank endeavours to keep the financial system on an even keel.
