The Bank of Canada Museum presents Mining the Miners, an exhibition about a booming economy of sky-high prices and staggering profits, broken dreams and some very unorthodox banking. Presented in a beautifully detailed diorama of original Dawson buildings, see how the profits were really made in this wild and wooly frontier metropolis. Along the way, you’ll also see some bank notes specific to the gold rush, tokens good for a variety of human vices and of course, a real nugget of the stuff dreams are made of. Mining the Miners opens on 24 June 2016 and will run until the end of 2017 at the Canadian Museum of History in Gatineau, Québec. Located on the lower level, next to the Canadian Stamp Collection.
