Bank of Canada Museum

The first few visitors were shown around the Bank of Canada’s redesigned museum on June 20 by governor Stephen Poloz, ahead of its formal opening on July 1.

The museum, housed in part of the central bank’s Ottawa head office, has been closed for four years as part of a “complete reimagining”, the Bank of Canada said in a statement. The opening follows the return of staff to the main building, which has also been refurbished.

As well as displaying 1,400 artefacts from the National Currency
