Tulip Fest 2019 at the Bank of Canada Museum

Canadian Tulip Festival 2019

During the Canadian Tulip Festival, spring into the Museum for some special activities. It’s not all about flowers, either, though there will be lots of that. Guided tours on unusual money, an interactive presentation on e-money and crypto assets, kids’ self-discovery adventures and lots of paper crafts will be on the menu for this year’s festival.

Take a 30-minute guided tour about the unusual money in our galleries then spend some time making some shrewd guesses about what it will buy. You even get to handle some reproduction artifacts.

The Past and Future of Crypto “Money”

Bitcoins and tulips have more in common than you think. Participate in this presentation about e-money and crypto assets with a Bank of Canada expert. Geared to adults, but it does come with an interactive element.

Kids’ Discovery Adventure

May 11–20, 10:00–17:00

Let your kids run free with a self-discovery tool kit. With a magnifying glass, flashlight and artifact pictures, they’ll go on a scavenger hunt to discover that money is not just coins and bills.

The Paper Tulip

May 11–20, 10:00–17:00

Fold an origami tulip with beautiful, bank note inspired paper. Simplified for kids, it’s not so hard as you’d imagine.

Flower Pot Market

May 11–12, 13:00–17:00
May 18–20, 13:00–17:00

Kids can make themselves a pot for their origami tulip, but there’s a catch. Sorry, kids, you have to do it on a budget. They are an economics museum, after all.
