There, you will learn everything about the euro coins and notes. How can you distinguish between real and fake notes? Come to practise the “feel, look and tilt” method on your euro notes. Furthermore, the museum organises a competition where your knowledge of the euro coins in your wallet will be tested. Not so easy, because the 19 euro countries bring a widespread variation.
