Museum late: Slavery & the Bank

15 February: a free evening exploring our exhibition Slavery & the Bank

About the event

When: Thursday 15 February 2024, 5pm to 8pm

We’re open late to give you extra opportunity to visit our exhibition Slavery & the Bank, which explores the history of transatlantic slavery through its connections with the Bank of England and the wider City of London. This is the final chance to see the exhibition during a Museum Late before it closes on 22 February.

Curator-led tour:

6.45pm. Free, drop in.

Join our curator for an introductory 20 minute tour of our exhibition Slavery & the Bank. The tour will focus on the Bank of England’s connections to transatlantic slavery and the slave trade.

Please arrive 10 to 15 minutes early to avoid queues as you enter the museum. 

Can’t make this event? We are open until 8pm every third Thursday of the month. Our next late will be on Thursday 21 March.

Archival documents table
