  • I was curious to visit this Museum and we did really well to check them out. Not only for the fact that it's free but because I was really curious. In this museum are all stories of banknotes and coins belonged since antiquity to the Scottish Empire. There are also all the machinery by which were minted coins. Truly beautiful!

  • We were expecting something else. It is very small. Only go if you spare time because it is not a big deal. That Yes is in little time and is close to the Cathedral

  • This small but interesting museum on money is actually inside the Bank of Scotland headquarters. Here you can see £1m in notes, collection of coins minted from King David I in the early 12 century up ...  more »

  • A very interesting museum all about money, currently etc. With real two million pounds on display in cancelled twenty pound notes it's fun to see how much space it takes. There's also a shop and friendly staff. Well worth a visit.
  • Interesting background of the Bank of Scotland. Cool to see £1 million in notes! We got to strike a coin each when we were there as an event was on - a good wee souvenir from our visit!
  • Very friendly staff and genuinely interesting exhibits. Stayed for about an hour having a look around. Gift shop reasonably priced also (especially when you consider the there's no admission fee).
  • Interesting museum about the history of the Bank of Scotland and the money itself. Admission is free and worth a visit if you are interested in the topic.
  • Great place to learn about money history, went with my 6 year old son. Small place but fun, my son enjoyed doing the building the bank with blocks puzzle on a timer.
