Annual closing: from 24 December 2012 till 1st January 2013

The museum of the National Bank of Belgium closes its doors during the Christmas period: from Monday 24st December till New Year.

The National Bank has had 21 governors

The person in charge of the National Bank of Belgium is called the governor. Room 1 in the museum comprises the former governor’s office, which was in use until 1953. Since the Bank was set up in 1850, 21 men have held the post of governor, and have made their mark on this institution (some more so than others). This month, the Spotlight focuses on this high office at the Bank and the men who have held it.
