Your online presence is required
We recognize that you can’t all get out to see us personally. It’s a long way from Corner Brook or Saskatoon and the bus service from Iqaluit is just awful. But, you’re almost here - virtually speaking of course. We have a mandate to be a ‘national’ museum, available to all Canadians and it is here that you will be able to tour our exhibitions, learn about the Bank’s functions, explore in detail the artifacts in our collection and read articles and research papers written by our knowledgeable curators. Of course, you must check out the blog for up-to-date Museum news, events and the errant musings and curious activities of our staff.
18 July 2017 A Dash Through the Imperial War Museum
So, despite the known health risks, I rashly decided to “do” London’s Imperial War Museum (IWM) in a single morning. It almost worked.
11 July 2017 Our Grand Opening…
After four years of plans, worries, setbacks, successes and sheer hard work, the Bank of Canada Museum opened its doors—on Canada Day, right on schedule.
30 June 2017 C’mon In!The ribbon has been cut, the doors unlocked and you just can’t imagine how glad we are to see you here at the Bank of Canada Museum. Welcome and thank you for celebrating with us on our grand opening day.
We’re really rather nice. We are here to help you understand what the Bank does and how it matters to you. But, we are also a museum in the traditional sense, so the history of World and Canadian currency will also be explored: exhibiting fascinating artifacts and rare examples of money the likes of which you may have never seen before.
