About the Bank of Canada Museum

Background

In 1980, Canada’s Currency Museum opened on the ground floor of the Bank of Canada in Ottawa. The Currency Museum housed the National Currency Collection (established in 1959), which contains over 100,000 currency-related artifacts from around the world.

The Currency Museum closed in July of 2013 for renovations to the Bank of Canada building. This allowed for a complete reimagining of the museum’s role. In July 2017 the museum reopened as the Bank of Canada Museum

Reimagining

In addition to fostering the National Currency Collection, the Bank of Canada Museum now provides a place for Canadians to learn about the role we as individuals play in the economy and Canada’s role in the world economy.

Here are some key features of the permanent exhibition:

  • 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.

    Good afternoon,

    I am writing to see if you are still looking for students to evaluate the museum. I am a third year student at Carleton and would be very interested in participating if you are still in need of students.
