Moneyville - Call for availability!

Money isn’t just about dollars and cents. The ancient Aztecs used chocolate for money, and Yap Islanders used 500-lb. stones! So what is money and how does it work? Now families, adults, and children can explore the history, science, math, and economics behind money in Moneyville. This highly interactive traveling exhibition uses the familiar and fascinating subject of money to build math skills and promote economic literacy in a fun, immersive urban environment.

Visitors enter the vibrant “city” of Moneyville and embark on an exciting hands-on tour through a money factory, an anti-counterfeiting forensics lab, a bank, a shopping district, a stock market, and an international shipping dock. As participants engage in the multiple activities, games, and simulations of this imaginary city, they discover economic concepts, math skills, and problem-solving strategies that can help them in their real-life decision making. Moneyville meets national math and economics standards, making it ideal for school groups (grades K-8).
