The Bank of England Museum traces the history of the bank from 1694. The Bank of England Museum tells the story of the Bank of England from its foundation in 1694 as a chartered joint-stock company to its role today as the United Kingdom's central bank.

The Bank's collection of notes is unique. It mainly consists of issued Bank of England notes dating from the late 17th century, original artwork by note designers, and an unrivalled collection of forgeries. It is the largest collection of Bank of England notes and associated material in the world.

Special exhibitions and events take place in the Museum throughout the year. These range from exhibitions on aspects of the Bank of England's work and history, often including items from the Bank's collections that are not on public display, to activities for children during school holidays, and seasonal craft and concert events.

The Museum is open from Monday to Friday, 10.00 - 17.00, Christmas Eve, 10.00 - 13.00. It is closed at weekends and on Public and Bank Holidays.
