The Currency Museum of the Bank of Canada features permanent displays of the history of money in Canada and around the world, as well as temporary and travelling exhibitions on a variety of money-related themes. Managed by the Bank of Canada, the Museum presents programs for students and the general public that interpret Canada’s monetary and economic heritage, increase public awareness of the Bank of Canada, and foster confidence in bank notes and the Canadian financial system.
