The Bank of Finland Museum

What is inflation? How does monetary policy work, what about the central bank system? The Bank of Finland Museum provides an easily comprehensible and colourful account of these issues, which many find complex.
Squirrel skins, Lydian coins and fascinating film clips take visitors on a trip to the history of money. Many modern financial phenomena are also introduced clearly. 
With the help of the museum’s computer games and software, find out how you would perform as a central banker or what a cinema ticket cost 50 years ago. The Bank of Finland’s inflation forecast can be checked on a gauge, and the exhibition also provides tips for identifying counterfeit banknotes.
The visually impressive corridor of banknotes presents the artists who have designed the notes.
The Bank of Finland Museum’s website provides information on changing exhibitions. The museum also features a small café and a museum shop.
