Themes and virtual visit

Welcome to the world of money and central banking!

The permanent exhibition is constructed around three themes. The main focus is on the operation of the Bank of Finland and the European System of Central Banks and monetary policy. The history section presents the history of cash in Finland and around the world as well as monetary policy developments as part of Finnish society. In the banknotes section, the emphasis is on developments in banknote art and banknote graphics since the early 19th century.

The aim of the museum is to give a clear and easily understood presentation of these economic issues, which are often considered esoteric and cryptic. You can for example try your hand as a central banker – please see the Multimedia section (linkki).
