The Bank of Finland Museum lectures for the general public continue in spring 2017. This year, we will celebrate Finland's 100 years by organising a range of different events on the subject. The spring programme will focus, as usual, on monetary and economic policies and also involve history and perspectives on the future. We will present to the public the Bank of Finland journal Euro & talous immediately upon publication.
The events are open to all and are free of charge. They are held on the premises of the Bank of Finland Museum at Snellmaninkatu 2, Helsinki.
