Education and Reservations

Financial education is at the heart of the Museum’s mission. For more than 20 years, educators from around the country have been bringing students to the Museum to help them understand how finance impacts their daily lives.

In 2010, the Museum founded its Center for Financial Education, which offers a variety of programs, including classes taught by Museum educators and market professionals. Please select one of the three following options to proceed with a booking.


The Museum offers 45-60 minute classroom programs, by request only, taught in the education center by museum educators and industry professionals. Standard classes cost $250 and advanced classes cost $500. All of our classes can accommodate up to 40 people and include museum admission.

Educational Materials

The Museum’s educational materials supplement its tour and classroom programs. If you are planning a group visit for a middle school or high school group, we recommend printing copies of one of our scavenger hunts as a fun and educational way for your students to explore the exhibits. If you will be participating in a classroom program, our curriculum guides will give you a sense of the material that will be covered and may be used as pre- and post-visit materials to enhance your students’ Museum experience.
