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.

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.
