History and Education

“The history of currency in Australia was presented beautifully.” –Outback Mum, Google, June 2017

“We started our Canberra getaway here. Our tour guide was very informative, and kept us all interested with the history of currency, especially Australia's.” –Sia S, TripAdvisor, June 2017

“The amount of shipwreck history (and the coins found) was amazing. I could have stayed longer reading each plaque of information. Such an interesting place to visit, learning about Australia's beginnings of currency and trade. A must visit.” –hbcutiepie, TripAdvisor, February 2017

“This is a trip I did as a child and I thought my children would enjoy it too. I was right! We spent half a day there and learned a great deal about our currency and its evolution. Lots of different historic exhibits and also the latest technology used.” –Geoffrey G, TripAdvisor, July 2016.


“This tour was surprisingly fun & informative. There's so much more to money than spending it! It kept my 10 year old captivated.” –Foodbaby2016, TripAdvisor, January 2017

“This is one of the best tours we have ever been on, and to add to its attraction, it is free. Our tour guide managed to engage a diverse group of people from young children to those in the older age group. He used the displays on the second floor to illustrate his talk with effectiveness. And, to be able to view the minting process is incredible. Not to be missed.” –Kiwibird248, TripAdvisor, January 2017.
