    The museum has some really interesting information and has some great interactive exhibits. The building itself is really nice, but I've heard people say the bank itself looks even better.

    Very informative and interactive. The best part is that you can hold a gold bar.

    Be sure to lift the bar of gold and check your ID under the UV lamp.

    Try to lift the gold bar and hunt for the £1,000 note! Interior architecture here is amazing..

    Maybe the only place in the world where you can hold a bar of gold worth £300,000 (if you're strong enough). The museum is good, but the bank's actual interior is better.

    It's more interesting than you might think. And you get to lift a genuine bar of gold, worth hundreds of thousands of pounds.

    Go in an Open Day, the interior is beautiful. The museum is just OK.

    Figure out the combination to the £50 safe for a free pin from the front desk.

    Tacked on to the end of the Bank of England, this museum is housed in a replica Sir John Soane interior, the largest of its kind in the world. Read more

    Housed inside the former Stock Offices of the Bank of England, this engaging and surprisingly lively museum explores the history of the national bank. Read more

    Being closed at weekends and bank holidays does limit your visiting options. Lots of old banknotes and the chance to touch a gold bar.

    Not worth going unless you want to see old currency. Sadly deficient on the policy work the Bank does and what they do have is hopelessly slanted.

    Muito interessante os jogos que mostram como controlar a inflação. A presidente do Brasil deveria visitar.
