It’s why we’re here
It’s the big idea of every museum, the main message, the lead story. The permanent exhibition is the heart of your Bank of Canada Museum visit and we’ve designed it as a journey that takes you from an understanding of your role in the economy to a broader understanding of Canada’s role in the world economy and how the Bank helps it all run smoothly. Getting there is, of course, half the fun and here are a few attractions you’ll see along the route.
- Let your fingers do the walking through 400 artifacts on our huge digital touch wall.
- Discover the psychology of economic expectations as reflected by your own needs and spending habits.
- Navigate the economic galaxy to land on target.
- Understand the Bank’s role in our economy and how it affects you.
- Explore several millennia of money from all over the globe.
- Take pride in the beauty and sophistication of every Bank of Canada bank note and even design your own.
- Relax and enjoy a multimedia show stopper that brings it all together.
