Bringing facts and figures to the people
What's the purpose of the euro? What are its benefits? Has it been 10 years already...?
You can find the answer to these questions and all you ever wanted to know about the euro in our travelling exhibition "The euro, our currency" – a modern, interactive exhibition with touch screens, a quiz, computer games for kids, a coin press machine, and audiovisual products (EMU@10 video).
You may have the opportunity to see the exhibition in your country, as it travels around Europe. Since it was launched in June 2007, the exhibition has already visited 11 EU Member States and almost 30 cities. No area is too remote to inform the citizens on the euro, with the exhibition reaching as far as the Azores Islands (Portugal). The exhibition is currently being shown until December 14 in Łódź (Poland). The next stop for the exhibition will be the city of Krakow (Poland).
Modern and interactive
The exhibition is interactive, with touch screens and audiovisual elements, as well as traditional exhibition panels, enabling people to 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 with two computer games, where they can show how quickly they are able to recognise banknotes and the different national sides of the coins. At the end of your visit, you can press your own coin in the shape of a medal with the emblem of the exhibition.
Should you be interested as a national entity in cooperating with us to host the euro exhibition, please contact us.
