The Bank of Finland Museum lectures for the general public continue in autumn 2017. This year, we will celebrate Finland’s 100 years by organising a range of different events on the subject. The autumn programme will focus, as usual, on monetary and economic policies and also involve history and perspectives on the future. We will present to the public the Bank of Finland journal Euro & talous immediately upon publication.

The events are open to all and are free of charge. All events are in Finnish unless otherwise stated. They are held on the premises of the Bank of Finland Museum at Snellmaninkatu 2, Helsinki.
