MONEYVILLE

Moneyville

February 5 - Sept. 6, 2014

 Visitors enter the vibrant “city” of MONEYVILLE and embark on an exciting hands-on tour through a money factory. Here visitors are introduced to the sculptor-engravers that create the designs and models for our nation’s currency. Visitors move on to an anti-counterfeiting forensics lab, a bank, a stock market, and an international shopping district. As participants engage in the multiple activities, games, and simulations of this imaginary city, they discover interesting historical facts about money from around the world, economic concepts, and problem-solving strategies that can help them in their real-life decision making. This highly interactive traveling exhibition uses the familiar and fascinating subject of money to build creative skills and promote economic literacy in a fun, immersive environment.
