Post a letter or buy your lunch with art? You do it every day.
Experience the creative process, the technical skill and the sheer artistry that underlies every series of Canadian stamps and bank notes from concept to final product. Reproductions of original art, printing plates, tools, rare stamps, and money—lots of money—are waiting for you in this fun, informative and enriching look into the beauty and intricacy of Canadian stamps and bank notes.
Aimed at youth, families and adults, this light version of our artifact-rich travelling exhibition still features hands-on interactives and is accompanied by the same school and general programming as its big sister. Re-produce the beautifully elaborate patterns of classic bank notes and browse through a millennium’s worth of engravers and engraving history.
