Make sense of cents at this small museum tucked within the greenhouse lobby of the Bank of Canada building. Various displays detail the global history of money, from seashells and whales' teeth to banknotes and credit cards. Don't miss the giant Yap stone – used to display a family's wealth – sitting amid exotic foliage near the museum's entrance.
