The governor of the Mozambican central bank today, May 17, inaugurated the Museum of the Bank of Mozambique (BdM), an infrastructure located in the capital and that will serve to “preserve and enhance the institutional memory” of the regulator.
“The establishment of this museum involved research, information gathering and exchange of experience with national and international entities, which culminated in the production of documents, image collection and objects from the historical path of the bank’s activities,” Rogério Zandamela said during the inauguration ceremony.
As well as all types of coins that have been used in Mozambique since colonial times, the museum’s collection is made up of paintings by various artists, including some works by the historic Mozambican artist Malangatana.
“The museum comprises five thematic areas, which provide a historical, technical-scientific and artistic vision of our country,” explained Rogério Zandamela.
The opening of the museum coincided with the celebration of the institution’s 48th anniversary.
