Bank of England Museum

Bartholomew Ln, London EC2R 8AH

Located within the historic walls of the Bank of England in Threadneedle Street, right in the heart of the City, this Museum explains the History of the Bank since its foundation in 1694 to the present day and its vital roles at the centre of the economy.

There’s something for everyone, with attractions including activity sheets for children of all ages, banknote jigsaws, a roller ball game, touch screens and the opportunity for some safe cracking! There’s even a real gold bar which can be handled, although – weighing 13kg – you will have to be pretty strong to be able to lift it!

The Museum runs special events for all the family during school holidays, from storytellers to workshops, and it is a supporter of the Kids in Museums Manifesto. Check its website for details.
