British Museum

I was recently visiting England for personal reasons and took the opportunity to tour the British Museum. They have numerous accounting-related exhibits in their money exhibit (room 68). Included in the collection are 5,000-year-old accounting source documents and records, and artwork depicting the social significance of accounting and money through the ages. My particular favourite, however, is a 10 trillion dollar banknote. Unfortunately it is from Zimbabwe and is not worth the paper on which it is printed.
