Strike it Lucky!

  • 14 — 15 May 2016 2:30-4pm

Money makes the world go around - and you can too! Come and literally make a mint by striking your own coin - and it won't cost you a penny! Our fantastic museum has lots of interesting facts and figures for your budding banker - did you know, for instance, that tea, shells and even feathers have been used as currency in the past? Now that should tickle your fancy! Have a go at cracking a safe (all in the interests of research, of course), or come and see what £1 million in £20 notes looks like. Money may not make you happy but it can certainly be a lot of fun!
