The Bank of Finland Museum programme for spring 2020 focuses on re-evaluation of monetary policy strategy, digitalisation of money and payments, and the economic outlook.

Through public events, the Bank of Finland promotes citizens’ financial literacy and knowledge of the financial markets. The events also aim to increase dialogue with the public.

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. As a rule, the events start at 17.00 and are held in Finnish, unless otherwise specified.
