  • This is a very good free museum located at the actual Bank of England building. If you are at all interested in currency, banking or history you will have a great time here. It’s amazing to learn the importance of money in history and this really illustrates that well in addition to learning about modern currency. You can also touch and lift a giant bar of gold for a cool photo op! They also have clean restrooms and a nice (but small) gift shop. Be prepared for security screening before you enter.
  • Much more interesting and expansive than I would have thought. A bit more text/context about some of the items would have been great. I went with some adults with learning challenges and they found lots of interest as well!
