Bank of England Museum What's On

The Bank of England Museum is a fascinating place to visit and one of those London Museums which can easily be missed out on a visitors itinerary. However it really is a rather unusual and interesting museum, presented within the bank itself and in a modern and stimulating way.

Throughout the year the museums hold special new exhibitions, events and talks. This page will keep you up to date with what's going on at the Bank of England Museum. Subscribe via our RSS feed or our FREE monthly newsletter to be notified of new events.
