This is a rather small, yet surprisingly fascinating museum, located in the building of the Bank of England. This musuem provides a lot of information about not only the Bank of England as institution, but also about the building and the economy. And finally, you can try to lift a gold bar (not the easiest task). Overall, definitely worth visiting.

Free. Free WiFi. Nice cheap souvenirs. You could touch and try to lift a real gold bar. Cute! Unfortunately due to pandemic it won't be allowed anymore. The museum anyway hasn't reopened yet. It seems it will be closed for long.

Not a 'must see', but interesting enough. It's closed weekends and bank holidays. We didn't pay for a tour, and it's a lot of reading to make the best of the visit. But while we were there, a group of tourists turned up, and I listened at the back to their guide. Made its very much interesting. So I would guess, if a tour is available take it. Not essential, but better.

Fantastic few hours spent at the museum, a must for anyone interested in money. It was much bigger than first thought. Really well laid out and thoroughly fascinating. Amazing to see the notes and how they have changed over the years- plus getting to try and lift a real gold bar. Thoroughly recommend a visit and we will definitely be back

This is a most interesting place to visit. We never think about how/where money started really. Loads of inter active things to try. I liked the one that showed up all the "hidden" marks on BOE notes. Very clever. Of course, getting your hand, not hands, on the GOLD BAR is a must. Good for a wrist work out!! I ran short of time to do this proper justice, so give it plenty of time, 4 hours maybe.
