Attraction Information

  • Museums and Art Galleries icon Museums and Art Galleries

Suitable for all ages

Venue type: Indoor

Museum on the Mound is housed in the magnificent purpose built head office of the Bank of Scotland, a beautiful building with a fascinating history. This museum takes a fresh look at money, featuring technology, art and design, trade and security, and crime! It is open throughout the year and free to visit, making for an interesting day out that won't break the bank and get you in trouble (see what we did there)!

Discover more about money in all its shapes and forms, including how it has developed over the past 4,000 years, and items that were previously used as currency, such as shells and even feathers! See £1 million pounds, and try your hand at cracking a safe! Find out why the Bank of Scotland was created and discover some of its famous customers, plus explore how it has changed over the last 300 years.

You can also learn about Victorian Britain, discover what housing conditions were like during the Industrial Revolution, and find out working people clubbed together to build themselves better homes. It's a pleasing fascinating educational jaunt that most curious kids of school age will enjoy.

In addition to the permanent displays, the museum has a special exhibit during the summer months, and it also hosts temporary installations from time to time, so repeat visits are well worth it too!
