Accessibility and Special Needs

At the Bank of Canada Museum, we strive to provide each visitor with a positive experience and are committed to accessibility for all.

About the Museum

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.
