History of money and banking in this tiny free museum located inside the bank. Lots of interesting rare bank notes. Stop by after your tour of Notre Dame. Shouldn't take longer than 15-20 minutes.

Lovely architecture both outside and in. There is not hat much to see but the limited exhibits are still worth a look. Banks of the bygone age come to life.

Great building, inside and out. It has a lot of marble. If you are interested in architecture this is worth a quick look. The lobby has a WW I monument. It was is near the Catherdral. See both at the same time.

This is a very small (albeit free) museum that takes you through a journey of Canadian currency. It was really interesting and even held the kids' interest whilst we spend 20 mins looking at the exhibits.
