The Money Museum in Vilnius introduces its visitors to the history of world money and banking. The museum closely integrates the traditional forms of the exhibition and modern interactive tools. Visitors have the opportunity not only to view the exhibition passively, but also to take an active part using computer terminals, visual, sound and lighting effects, entertainment tests, educational and documentary films.
Museum history begins in 1985, when the Museum of the History of the State Bank was housed in the Lithuanian republican administration of the State Bank,USSR. It was registered in 1986 as one of the public museums of the Lithuanian SSR and stored 489 exhibits from its assets. After the restoration of Lithuanian independence in 1990 and the creation of the Bank of Lithuania, the Lithuanian Republican Bank of the USSR and its subordinate institutions were liquidated. The museum was closed. In 1993, the museum was resumed, but in 1996 the museum was closed again, and its exhibition was dismantled.
In 1999 the museum exhibits were placed in new premises and on June 25 museum was opened to the public. This date is considered as official museum opening date.
