What's the purpose of the euro? What are its benefits?
You can find the answer to these questions and all you ever wanted to know
about the single currency in our brand new travelling exhibition "The euro,
our currency" – a modern, interactive exhibition with touch screens, a quiz
and two computer games for kids. You may have the opportunity to see the
exhibition in your country, as it will be
travelling around Europe.
Modern and interactive
The exhibition is interactive, with touch screens and audiovisual elements as well as traditional exhibition panels, enabling people can skip sections or find in-depth information on different euro-related topics according to their interest. They can also test their knowledge on the euro by doing our quiz. There is a special island for children island with two computer games, where they can show how quickly they are able to recognise banknotes and the different national sides of the coins.
This new exhibition builds on the "Euro Coins
Genesis exhibition" that was shown from 2004 and 2006 and
travelled to 11 Member States. Then, the objective was to make citizens
familiar with the new coins. The new exhibition goes well beyond featuring the
new coins and how banknotes and coins are produced. It shows the many
opportunities the EMU brings.
