See money come to life at the Bank of England

Date Posted: 26/01/2015

Banking on a great school trip? The Bank of England museum has lots planned for 2015.

If you weren’t already aware of its existence, the Bank of England’s official museum is located around the corner of the infamous Threadneedle Street cash house.

The museum is currently home to a temporary exhibition looking at the impact of the Great War on the economy. The First World War and the Bank of England runs until 13th March.

A new permanent exhibition will run alongside it; Discover GOLD! features gold bars from Roman times to the present day.

After 23rd March, schools can visit the Flora and Fauna exhibition – featuring all the plants and animals that have adorned banknotes, coins and the bank building itself over the years.

Teachers can book a creative Magical Mosaics workshop to create mosaics inspired by the Flora and Fauna exhibition, from 26th to 29th May.
