Come take a look a the recent past and near future of e-money in this dynamic new exhibition by the Bank of Canada Museum.

Decoding E-Money explores the voyage of your dollars from purchase to deposit through various traditional and e-payment systems.  Explore more that 60 artifacts covering the way Canadians have spent their money over the course of 200 years. From trading tokens to the most recent precursors of todays’ e-money, these artifacts at one time challenge our notions of acceptance much the way that Bitcoin challenges us today.

 

1867 – Rebellion & Confederation

The New Iceland Heritage Museum is hosting  a new travelling exhibit, “1867 – Rebellion & Confederation”. It will be on display until March 17th, 2017. This is a very fitting exhibit to help celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday, talking about the how it all began.

 

A TRAVELLING EXHIBITION DEVELOPED BY THE CANADIAN MUSEUM OF HISTORY.

On July 1, 1867, Confederation was proclaimed, marking the birth of today’s Canada and the culmination of a journey that had taken nearly 30 years.

This exhibition explores the route to nationhood taken by a society in transition, and by the people who fought, negotiated and made compromises to forge a more peaceable union.

By tracing the pivotal moments leading to the draft of the British North America Act, this exhibition helps visitors to better understand how this legacy continues to affect our identity, our values and our institutions.

 

This exhibition consists of 6 distinct zones filled with interactive modules, text panels and showcases.

The exhibition also features several interactive modules :

  • Mining Bitcoin Game – (a three person game to learn more about mining)
  • Interactive time line
  • Small animated video on Bitcoin, the First Cryptocurrency (understand how users buy cryptocurrency, pay with it or earn it).
  • Payment Card System with interactive map and 4 screens where visitors can find more information on the different methods of payment
  • An interactive quiz
