Brilliant banknotes

Design your own personalised banknote in a free creative workshop. A ’notable’ experience for all the family

About the event:

Tuesday 26 to Friday 29 May
10.30am to 4.30pm

Explore our banknote gallery for inspiration. Then make your own personalised banknote to take home.

To get the most out of the session, we encourage visitors to come prepared with some ideas. What do you want your note to look like? What will you add to your note to make it hard to copy?

Workshops start at 11am, 12pm, 2pm and 3pm.

Places are limited and allocated on a first come first served basis. We advise you to arrive at least an hour before your preferred session time to avoid disappointment. Arriving early will also give you time to explore the museum for ideas.
