Bank of England Museum


About the Bank of England Museum

A surprisingly large museum housed within the Bank of England.

It charts the history of money in the UK, and the Bank itself.

Expect to see lots of heritage, old bank notes and coins, and a chance to lift up a real bar of gold.

Displays cover the history of the bank in roughly chronological order, including many photos showing the rebuilding of the Bank in the inter-war years, and several figures in historical costume. Another section, called The Bank Today, uses modern technology to bring the Bank's current activities to a wider audience.
