  • Worked in the City for 10 years and had never visited before. Took my 8 year old daughter and my 5 year old son. Lots of interesting facts about the Bank and money in general and lots of interactive displays. As it was just a week after Easter, there was still an Easter Egg hunt going on and the kids had to find 3 chicks and a golden chocolate egg (clues provided). We handed over the completed form at the end and they both got a Caddburys cream chocolate egg for their efforts. Good try at lifting a real 13kg gold bar with one hand. We all enjoyed it. Recommended and it's free.
  • Very cool and different museum. Relatively small considering the size of other museum's in London. But very nice for something else to do. I unfortunately went when there was a school trip on which meant I had to wait quite a while to get into some rooms as children were just lingering there. Holding a bar of gold was a very cool experience. However again, I waited around 20mins to hold it because children were just playing around it. Overall very cool and would recommend to people who have time to go. However not a must do in London. The gift shop was also incredibly overpriced.
  • Very interesting. Helpful staff. mainly very interesting exhibits. Try it best and n most interest display. Lots gorgeous children. Free and recommended. .
  • Really interesting museum and free to enter. A lot more here than you might expect and some great exhibits. Can easily spend and hour or two here and interesting for children too.
  • Free, small very interesting. You can see if you can lift a real gold ingot. History of how the building developed well covered. Best thing is its not crowded even though there were students visiting.
