On display in the 130 sqm one room museum are a range of artefacts from Reserve Bank’s history including rare notes and coins.
One of the most popular exhibits is the MONIAC (Monetary National Income Analogue Computer), an analogue computer invented by New Zealander Bill Phillips in the late 1940s. It is designed to calculate the effects of changes in the economy. There are demonstrations on the first Wednesday of every month between 12:15 and 12:45pm.
