March Break at the Bank of Canada Museum!


Pop in with the kids for some fun crafts and FREE family activities during the Quebec and Ontario March Breaks (March 4th to 15th 2024). 

It’s all about currency, counterfeiting and telling the difference. The Museum is open daily, from 10:00 to 17:00.

Real or fake?

See fake currency and the real thing from around the world and throughout history. Guess which is which while we share some fascinating stories.

Testing polymer

Our “paper money” is made of polymer plastic. Compare its durability to cotton paper with hands-on soaking, staining and tearing tests.

Drawing with coin rubbings

Place coins under paper and gently rub a crayon across them to reveal all their details. Arrange the rubbings on magical landscapes, trees or whatever you like.

I spy Canadian symbols

Grab a magnifying glass and a checklist and head into the Museum to find Canadian symbols on bank notes old and new. Find them all to win a prize!
