Invite an exhibition over
If you can’t come to the museum, the museum can come to you! To this end, we’ve put together two travelling exhibitions: one providing an overview of the history of Estonian money (“Estonian Money: from the Mark to the Euro”) and the other introducing the functions of the central bank and describing in detail the security features of euro notes (“The Eurosystem”). The exhibitions were compiled in such a way that they can be shown separately or together.
The exhibition on the history of money is placed on four arched modules, one module being 3 m wide and 2.4 m tall. The exhibition introducing the Eurosystem is presented on two modules. The exhibition also includes free information leaflets in Estonian, Russian and English.
The transport, installation and presentation of the exhibitions is free of charge.

“Estonian Money: from the Mark to the Euro”
“Estonian Money from the Mark to the Euro” provides an overview of the legal tender in circulation in Estonia since 1918: the mark, which signified the beginning of our statehood; the kroon, in circulation until 1940; the second kroon, introduced in 1992; and the euro, which is used today. The exhibition is also documented in a thorough catalogue that visitors can take with them.
The exhibition was completed in 2006 in cooperation with the Estonian History Museum.
“The Eurosystem” is a term denoting the central banks in the euro area. It includes the European Central Bank and all of the national central banks of the countries using the euro. In 2011, when Estonia joined the euro area, Eesti Pank became a member of the Eurosystem. The exhibition presents an overview of the functions of central banks in the euro area. It also showcases euro notes, their security features and the national sides of euro coins in detail.
The exhibition was completed in 2012 and is an extension of the exhibition on the history of Estonian money.
