Gold Rush! Free Summer Family Activity at the Bank of England Museum

Do you have what it takes to solve a 100-year old mystery at the Bank of England Museum?

Solve a puzzling case this summer with the help of a mysterious map where everyone in the family can use their detective skills for a day.

The Bank of England Museum will transport you back to the year 1836. The Bank’s Directors have received a mysterious map with details of London’s sewer system, claiming that one of the drains leads straight into our gold vaults! But which drain was it, and who made this bizarre claim? Find out by spotting clues as you go round the museum to claim your reward at the end.

You can also learn a little more about gold and why it has been treasured for thousands of years. You can even hold a genuine gold bar, which might take you by surprise – it weighs in at an impressive 13 kilos!

While you’re at the Museum, there are plenty of attractions to make sure you have a fun family day out, including a banknote jigsaw, a roller ball game and the opportunity to take part in some safe cracking. Activity sheets are also available for children of all ages, with a small prize for everyone who takes part.

All activities are free and there is no need to book in advance.
 
Bank of England Museum, Bartholomew Lane, London EC2R 8AH
