Museum Launches New Financial Education Initiative

January 21, 2010

The Museum of American Finance has launched a new financial education initiative designed to improve student visits to Wall Street by providing an extensive menu of courses for students in grades K-12, as well as college students and adults.

This initiative is being offered in addition to the Museum's long-standing program of guided exhibit tours, with the option for groups to receive a 45-minute lesson followed by lunch and a exhibit tour. Courses are now being offered on such topics as the history of Wall Street, a money show-and-tell and the psychology of budgeting and saving. Classroom programs based on the Museum’s exhibits, "Financial Markets," “Money: A History,” “Entrepreneurs,” “Banking in America” and “Alexander Hamilton,” are also now available.
